WEATHER & TIME
The forecast for today: Mostly sunny, high near 60. We’re heading into the last weekend of winter! Sunrise 7:18 am, sunset 7:17 pm.
Water Taxi – Regular schedule.
Metro – Regular schedule, with trip cancellations possible, so check notification channels such as @kcmetroalerts. If you ride the 120, it’s the route’s last day – Saturday it becomes the RapidRide H Line. A ceremonial ribboncutting is happening in White Center this morning; we’ll be there. Metro’s other spring “service changes” take effect Saturday too, but the H Line launch is the only major one for West Seattle.
