Patrick’s Day celebrations in Northeast Ohio are at risk of getting wet due to an incoming rain system that is expected to hit the area by Thursday night.
The system is predicted to cause a soggy commute on Friday, which could affect those heading to work or planning to participate in St.
Patrick’s Day festivities.
The rain is expected to taper off by late morning, just in time for the downtown parade in Cleveland, but temperatures will drop significantly, so parade-goers are advised to wear warm coats and bring gloves.
Some snow showers are also possible on Saturday, with a chance of one to three inches of snowfall.
Despite the potentially challenging weather conditions, Northeast Ohioans are preparing to embrace the Irish spirit in whatever way they can.
