For afternoon and early evening Christmas parades on Saturday, conditions should be dry but cloudy with that north wind still blowing and temperatures falling from around 50 at 3pm to the upper 40s by 7pm. A warm coat will be a good idea as the wind will be cool, but it won't be a frigid day with hand warmers, scarves and gloves probably not necessary.
