(CLEVELAND) - It is not likely that weather will delay Friday's St. Patrick's Day parade, but if it does, they'll make the decision to postpone it by 6 a.m. at the latest Friday morning. Shannon Corcoran, Executive Director of the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee told WTAM News the parade is "100%" going on as scheduled. While bad weather could theoretically intervene, all signs point to the parade not being postponed. The parade is scheduled to begin at 1:04 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Superior Avenue and E. 18th Street. The weather will be cold and snowy with highs in the 30s and possible freezing rain. The forecast on Sunday, the day which would serve as a backup parade day, is for partly sunny skies and about 40 degrees.
Also this year, organizers say, the route will be slightly different. The parade will go through the center of the newly renovated Public Square, instead of around it.
