    What will the weather be for your Saint Patrick's Day parade?

    New York, New York

    New York's parade will start at 10:45 a.m. EDT Saturday. Drizzle is possible during the morning hours with even a few snowflakes mixing in.

    "Temperatures Saturday will be in the mid 30's," AccuWeather Meteorologist Stephen Travis said. "This is below their normal high of 50."

    "It will be rainy in the morning but the rain should move out later leaving it dry in the afternoon," said Travis.

    The parade starts at 11 a.m. EDT Saturday. Once the rain moves out, it will remain cloudy with a high temperature in the upper 30's.

    "There will be a chance of a snow or rain shower early on," said Travis.

    The Chicago River green dye will be added at 10 a.m. EDT Saturday. The parade starts at noon.

    "A breeze from the north will make it feel a little chilly," Travis said. "Temperatures will be in the low to mid 30s, but there will be a little sunshine later in the afternoon."

    Washington, D.C.

    The parade in Washington begins at noon on Sunday. "It will be cool with temperatures in the low 40's," said Travis. "It will be mostly cloudy, with a chance of showers throughout the day."

    Parade goers will definitely need to have an umbrella handy while watching the parades this weekend.

    Meanwhile, further south, a mix of clouds and sun will be the story for parades in Savanna, Ga., and New Orleans, La. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s and mild during the parades on Sunday.
