The Krewe of Artemis in Baton Rouge has rescheduled its Friday night (Feb. 17) parade because of weather concerns, according to WAFB. The Mardi Gras parade now will roll Saturday night.

The festivities start at 7 p.m. on the same route in downtown Baton Rouge, WAFB reported.

Wet weather is expected Friday afternoon and night in New Orleans, as well. So far, none of the krewes have announced plans to change when they roll.
