National Weather Service forecast

I-90 mess? Not so much: The I-90 bridge work that  brought the freeway down to just one lane between Bellevue and Mercer Island isn’t so bad this morning we’re told. Go0od news, eh? Despite I-90 closures, traffic is “free flowing”

Kent police shoot man dead: We will have more later today on the shooting in Kent where police killed a man who shot at them yesterday afternoon. Four officers were hurt when a bullet hit a propane tank, which exploded.

Weather: Cooler with a high of only 73 degrees, which we hear is normal for this time of year. Really? Might be some sun this afternoon. National Weather Service forecast

And then there’s this: A child custody battle in Grants Pass, Ore., led to a high-speed chase between the parents, and at one point, the mother tried to ram the father’s car off the road. Take a wild guess where the children were.
