Good morning everyone. Working with the National Weather Service, Rochester Police Department and our Parade Chair, Rochesterfest has decided to cancel the parade for today. Our community’s safety is our first priority. Please help us pass this along by SHARING this information. We will be keeping an eye on the weather to see if we can get our evening entertainment on stage. Stay tuned for more details.
From the National Weather Service:
· The heavy rain threat is expected for the entire area.
· The heavy rain could lead to flash flooding if storms repeatedly move over the same areas.
· The potential exists throughout the day, with the best threat for impacts being during the afternoon hours.
