With another blast of winter expected Friday, officials are keeping a close eye on the annual Cleveland St. Patrick’s Day parade.

Organizers say there is a possibility Friday’s scheduled parade will be postponed due to weather conditions.

If the parade is pushed back, it will be held Sunday, March 19.

A final decision on the parade will be made by 6 a.m. Friday at the latest.

Temperatures will be in the 30s with chances for snow Friday afternoon. Sunday’s forecast, however, is calling for highs around 43 degrees with partly sunny skies.

2017 marks the 175th anniversary of the Cleveland St. Patrick’s Day parade, which steps off at the intersection of Superior Avenue and E. 18th Street
