The certainty of the cold in the forecast - and the uncertainty of snow, or sleet - is changing some holiday plans. The weather is leading to delays and cancellations of Christmas parades.

Three parades set for Thursday, December 5 are not going to happen, while many others planned for Friday and Saturday are in question.

These parades planned for Thursday are changing: Vinita & Wagoner are both delayed by one week to December 12. Pryor's parade is canceled.

The biggest group of parades is Saturday. Bartlesville, Chouteau, Muskogee and Tahlequah are waiting to decide, while some planned for Saturday have been delayed a week: they include Coweta, Glenpool and Okmulgee.

The Bristow and Sand Springs parades are canceled.

The Tulsa Christmas Parade at Tulsa Hills is still on, but organizers say they'll change plans if the roads are too dangerous.
