The potential thunderstorms over the weekend could force some crewes and parade goers to change their plans at the last minute.

Joe Cain day is this Sunday... And many people have asked us what will happen in case of a rainout.

Nbc 15's Derrikia Young spent the day downtown finding out the answer to that question

Some people are already changing their plans because of the storm threat, but a lot of people i spoke with say they aren't letting a little rain ruin their parade.

Mobile Police say right now the weekend parade schedule has not changed.

If dangerous stormy weather forces any cancellations, those parades would have to slide to Monday or maybe even Fat Tuesday when the parade schedule is already packed.

Right now the Mystics of Time are planning to roll on Saturday as scheduled, but they are hedging their bets by cancelling bands they hired to play.

We talked to Mobile's mayor today what people should do if weather gets crazy this weekend.

Hear his very frank advice for parade goers tonight on NBC 15 News at 6.
