Today's Weather: Lucky

Ah, St. Patrick's Day. While most of the city honored the patron saint of green beer over the weekend, today is the official holiday. But today will be about more than shamrocks and wearing green. Today will also be the start of a three-day stretch of amazing spring weather. Sunny skies, highs in the upper 50s, light is looking fantastic. And tomorrow? Highs in the upper 60s and even more on Friday. The point is, this weekend is looking crappy. So why not play hooky one of these days? Or all three? There'll be plenty of basketball to watch this weekend when it's cold and raining, so get outside and get some sun because while we're all Irish today, we shouldn't all be so pale.
