Beware the Ides of March.

1 - The wind will shift to the north again today under sunny skies. Highs should still make it to the 50's. Precipitation is in the forecast for the St. Patrick's Day parade on Saturday though. Your Local 4 News Pinpoint Forecast is here.

2 - A source says Toys R Us will close all 800 of its stores later this year including both Quad Cities locations. My Craig's Question today is: will you miss shopping at Toys R Us, or do you prefer other toy retailers? Let us know on our Facebook page.

3 - Got your bracket locked? March Madness begins today. Details and scores when we do That Sports Thing at around 7:30am.

4 - The last pairs of tickets to see Styx, REO Speedwagon, and former Eagle Don Felder are up for grabs today. Listen for the trivia question at 8:20am and 4:20pm. And catch That Entertainment Thing at around 8:30am.

Have a great Thursday.

- Craig
