Weather: All we’re going to say is wet. Today, tomorrow. OK, maybe not so wet Sunday, but we’ll see about that. Some forecasts say it’s rather muggy today. Of course it is, it’s drizzling. The National Weather Service forecast.
Traffic: The 520 bridge is closed again this weekend, starting at 11 tonight and reopening at 5 a.m. Monday. The stretch of roadway is closed between Montlake Boulevard and I-405 for construction work. Are you used to it yet? The map and cams.

The pix were put on the Web to promote National Breastfeeding Awareness Week in August by a group on the base called Mom 2 Mom.
