UTICA, N.Y. (AP) - The city of Utica’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade has been postponed because of windy, frigid weather that’s expected over the weekend.

City officials announced Thursday that Saturday’s event has been postponed. Officials plan to meeting Friday morning to discuss when to reschedule the parade.

Forecasts in central New York on Saturday are calling for high temperatures only in the mid-teens with winds at 20 mph to 30 mph and the wind chill predicted at 20 degrees below zero.

St. Patrick’s Day parades will be held Saturday in Albany, Syracuse and Rochester despite similar weather forecasts.

Monroe County has pulled its support for the Rochester parade because of the ongoing recovery efforts in the wake of Wednesday’s windstorm. More than 80,000 homes and businesses in the Rochester area are still without power Friday.
