Five Things You Need to Know Today: March 15
Five Brookline things today: local artists, feeling the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, fresh writers, and classic samurai flicks.
1. Chance of thunder storms or showers throughout the day, according to the National Weather Service--a 70 percent of showers between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., with a chance of thunderstorms before and after that (dropping to 20 percent in the evening). They expect less than a tenth of an inch, unless the thunderstorms all hit. Highs of 50ºF, lows of 42ºF.
