Day 41: Refuge takeover ends as last, reluctant holdout surrenders

The 41-day armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge ended Thursday as three of the four last holdouts south of Burns surrendered somewhat easily -- but it took over an hour on a live-streamed phone call and talk with an FBI negotiator for the last man to be coaxed and convinced to come out.

Local Alert Weather Forecast, Thu., Feb. 11, 2016

Good Thursday morning, everyone...

Mostly cloudy skies will stay with us through the day and to that we will add a chance of some scattered rain showers. Some areas to our north are likely to see some morning fog, as well.

That chance of showers diminishes, but stays with us tonight as lows drop into the 30's. Breezes stay gentle out of the south...

A very slight chance of scattered showers will remain as we go into the weekend, but the chance of heaviest rain settles in right about Valendtine’s Day Sunday. That will break up overnight and the new work week begins with more sunshine and highs in the low 60’s. The next storm system does not appear until the middle of next week.

...in the NewsChannel 21 Weather Center, I'm Bob Shaw...

HAVE A SPARKLING DAY IN C.O.!
