2019 Syracuse St. Patrick's Parade Day forecast: How it stacks up to the last 5 years
SYRACUSE, N.Y. —
For the thousands of people who will head downtown to enjoy another Syracuse St. Patrick's Parade, the forecast will not be out of the ordinary to four of the past five years in Syracuse.
Most years, Central New Yorkers bundle up in their green to enjoy Parade Day. However, it hasn’t always been snowy with low temperatures during the Irish holiday celebration.
The 2016 parade, held on March 13, saw a calm and mild day with a high of 53 degrees. The day was mostly dry with traces of rain.
This year’s parade, to be held on Saturday, March 16, is reported to be the warmest in the last three years. Our Weather Authority team says Saturday will be chilly, blustery and cloudy with limited breaks of sun. The high will be 37 degrees with scattered, light snow showers.
That's much warmer than in 2017, when wind chills were around zero degrees during the parade.
