The temperature will be in the upper 30s but the wind will make it feel colder when Decatur's Christmas parade begins to roll through downtown at 6 tonight.

The actual temperature when the “Christmas Movie Marathon” themed parade starts will be about 38.

"It will be falling," said Andy Kula, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Huntsvillle. "At 8 o'clock, it's going to be more like 35 or 36. Winds will be about 5 to 7 miles per hour. The wind-chill will be 33 to 35."

The parade will wind from Second Avenue to Bank Street. Rick Paler will serve as grand marshal.
