It’s Nov. 28, 2013, and the official start to Thanksgiving has begun. This year, the east coast is experiencing a terrible cold front and many are wondering if high winds and freezing temperatures will put a halt on one of America's favorite Thanksgiving traditions: The Macy’s Day Parade. Is the Macy’s Day Parade 2013 canceled?

As of the time of this report, the Macy’s Day Parade 2013, is scheduled to commence at 9 a.m., at Manhattan’s 77th St. and while the weather continues to threaten the morning’s events, the Macy’s parade is still scheduled to occur. It is possible that several of the larger balloons may be grounded.

Larger balloons cannot fly in wind speeds greater than 23 mph and current weather reports have winds listed as 22 mph. At this point, it’s a wait and see situation to determine exactly what the wind speeds will be at 9 a.m., ET. If the winds continue to be too great, the larger balloons will be grounded. Still, there are no plans to cancel the Macy’s Day parade; only to ground the larger balloons from flying.

According to the Weather Channel’s Alan Raymond, there is a possibility wind speed may reach 35 mph on Thanksgiving Day.

Stay tuned for the latest updates as to whether the Macy’s Day Parade will be canceled. As long as everything goes as planned, you can watch the Macy’s Day Parade streaming live online here.
