(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)  -- St. Joseph's St. Patrick's Day parade has been indefinitely postponed due to concerns over Coronavirus.

In a news release from the Ancient Order of Hibernians, who organize the parade, they said the decision was made due to rising concerns over the last 24 hours, including the pronouncement from the World Health Organization that the virus constitutes a pandemic, and guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control.

It said they were also influenced by the many similar, large event gatherings being canceled in our region. Out of an abundance of caution, we feel that we need to take responsibility for containment of the spread and must indefinitely postpone the parade.

A decision to reschedule may be made as circumstances become clearer.

The Shamrock Run scheudled for March 14 has also been canceled.

It was a pleasant start to the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid 60s. A cold front moving through the area will bring us down into the 30s for lows overnight with gusty winds up to 20 mph. This will keep our highs in the 50s on Sunday under mostly sunny skies with mild winds from the southwest. Temperatures will quickly start to warm up again on Monday with highs in the mid 60s. Rain chances look to stay minimal into next week. Temperatures are forecasted to stay above average for the first day of December on Wednesday.
