In the event of bad weather, the 2010 Mummers Parade would be postponed first to Saturday and then, if necessary, to Sunday.

If there is bad weather on both those days, the parade would be rescheduled for the following Saturday, Jan. 9, city officials said yesterday.

Friday's forecast calls for a high of 41 degrees, with a chance of snow or rain. The forecast for both Saturday and Sunday is cloudy, windy, and colder, with highs in the low 30s.

Regardless of the weather, the Fancy Brigade competition is to go on as planned Friday in the Convention Center at 12th and Arch Streets. Shows are scheduled for noon and 5 p.m.
