Canadians will be seeing green this weekend in honour of St. Patrick's Day.
But what's in store when it comes to the weather -- and what type of celebrations will be taking places in major cities like Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal?
Here's a (small) preview:
Vancouver's 9th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place starting at 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 17.
The fun will kick off at Howe and Davie streets and proceed north along Howe to Georgia, ending at Georgia & Granville.
Approximately 300,000 people are expected to gather to take in award-winning Celtic musicians, Irish dancers, acrobats and vintage cars -- among other things.
After the parade, stop by the Celtic Village on Granville street for some free Celtic entertainment.
Variable cloudiness and mild temperatures are in the forecast, and there's only a slight chance that Mother Nature will decide to rain on the parade.
Toronto's St. Patrick's Day parade begins at 12 p.m. on Sunday at Bloor and St. George, near old U of T Varsity Stadium.
The procession will continue along Bloor Street to Yonge and draw to a close on Queen street at Nathan Philips Square.
Hundreds of thousands of people line the street each year, so get there early -- and don't forget to bundle up: Sunday's high is expected to hover around the freezing mark.
Montreal's 190th St. Patrick's Day parade starts at 12 p.m. at the corner of Fort and Ste. Catherine streets. It will proceed along the main thoroughfare until the corner of Phillips Square and Ste. Catherine.
There will be lots to do in the city above and beyond the parade, including Irish breakfasts, a St. Paddy's Day bar crawl and plenty of live music.
It will be cloudy on Sunday with a daytime high below zero -- so don't forget your hat and mittens.
What will the weather be like in other parts of Canada?
Winter is hanging on in parts of the Prairies, and places like southern Manitoba and southern Saskatchewan can expects snow and strong wind gusts on St. Patrick's Day, courtesy of a clipper that is moving through the region.
Alberta may fare a bit better, with conditions improving through the day.
But Calgarians planning to attend the St. Patrick's Day Road Race should keep your eye on the forecast, which is calling for flurries.
"It will be cold and clear across a large part of Ontario, with the exception of northwestern Ontario, which will be seeing an increasing cloud cover as the clipper inches in from the Prairies," explains Gerald Cheng, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
"Atlantic Canada will see a few flurries here and there, with a mix of sun and clouds, accompanied by cool temperatures."
