Those wanting to attend the New Orleans Saints' championship parade this evening should probably already be out there if they want a good spot, but here is some information if you're not.

Tonight's weather is going to be very chilly with the high for the whole day being 49 degrees and dropping. Winds will be 15-20 mph and lows will dip down into the lower 30s so bundle up.

Now for the msot important information. The parade begins at 5:00 P.M. Central time at the corner of Poydras and LaSalle in front of the Superdome. It will run a rather long route before ending at Mardi Gras World at the end of Convention Center Boulevard. People have been asking me for a while now about road closings and finally that information has been released.

Please pay close attention to this information for best places to park, where NOT to park, and how to get around if you aren't attending the parade.
