Wilmington Delaware, York, Pennsylvania and Springfield, New Jersey are among the locations that have called off their St. Patrick’s parade because of the torrential rain and high wind expected on the East Coast this weekend.
Many other parades, including ones on Long Island, New York, could fall victim to the inclement weather.
Boston’s parade on Sunday will go ahead, but organizers believe the bad weather will sharply hit attendance.
The weather for the biggest parade of all, the New York St. Patrick’s parade that occurs on the day itself, Wednesday the 17,th is expected to be good, however, with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the 50s.
