Ahoy me hearties! Today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Yer for'cast for t'day is partly-cloudy with a chance of rum...Blimey! I mean, today's weather will be more o' t' same: a lot o' sun, pleasant temps, more than a few clouds, and a light salty breeze blowin' in from t' Bay. Aye, this be a good day for a sail.

For'cast confidence? I'd bet a piece o' eight on it.

Sail ho, buckos! That be all for now. Fair winds t' ye and yer crew!
