With heavy rain and blustery winds forecasted to hammer Long Island throughout the weekend, the community St. Patrick's Day parades scheduled for Saturday and Sunday may feel the effects.

As of Friday, only Westhampton Beach had moved its parade date, to Mar. 27. However, other parades including the Bay Shore-Brightwaters St. Patrick's Day parade, were expected to go on as scheduled.
