Over the years, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Newport has been held in all kinds of weather. From summer-like warmth to snow and raw rain, this time of the year you can expect just about any type of weather in Southern New England. By comparison to some of the worst years, the weather will not be that bad this year, but, it will not be anything too special, either.
The overall cool weather pattern will not be breaking anytime soon, and the high temperature on Saturday should be shy of the normal for mid-March. At one point this week, it looked like there would be some rain and/or snow in Southern New England, but that storm will be staying well south of Rhode Island, so, at least it will be dry.
The temperature will be near freezing early in the day, and the sky will be partly to mostly cloudy. The high temperature in the afternoon should be in the low 40s. It will feel a bit colder because of a 5-15 mph northwest breeze. The details on the 57th Annual Newport St. Patrick’s Day Parade forecast are below.
