Ready for another "Weekend in the West?"  And, we are kicking it off with St. Patrick's Day.  An Irish tradition that goes back to the year 461.  I think it may have lost a little bit of its legend with most Americans just wearing a tad of green today to not get pinched and of course the pubs and taverns serving up green beer.  That's about it.  Here's your St. Patrick's Day weather... Partly cloudy this morning along the South Oregon Coast, then becoming cloudy by afternoon with highs in the low 50s and winds light and variable.  Cloudy skies early tonight, then partly cloudy after midnight with lows in the mid 30s and winds continue light and variable.  A mix of clouds and sun Saturday morning, followed by cloudy skies in the afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 50s.  Best get to the news...
  • Okay, we made it, back to a twelve-hour day!  Yea!  And, we are sitting right on top of it at 7:25 both ends of the day.  Okay you lottery players, have at it.

Spring Break is coming up and normally it's like a flash flood on the Coast, lots of rainfall.  This is not Daytona.  Guess we will see soon enough.
