Holiday parade canceled due to weather
The Tinsel & Tidings on Tenth Parade scheduled for tonight, Nov. 12, has been canceled.
WORTHINGTON — The Community Image Committee of the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce announced today that the Tinsel & Tidings on Tenth Parade set for tonight has been canceled due to inclement weather.
The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for today and tonight for the area, stating that strong northwest winds will persist through the daytime hours. As the snow was to dissipate to flurries by this afternoon, local visibility reductions were expected.
A wind advisory was also issued for the area, initially set to expire at 6 p.m. tonight. Northwest winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour with gusts of up to 50 miles per hour were predicted, which could create patchy blowing snow, briefly causing some reduced visibility.
Drivers were advised to use extra caution while driving, particularly if operating a high profile vehicle.
