Bundle up but grab your sunglasses for Philadelphia Eagles' victory parade

The sun will shine on Philadelphia as hundreds of thousands fans take to the streets to celebrate the Eagles' victory in Super Bowl 52 on Thursday.

The City of Philadelphia announced that the victory parade will start at 11 a.m. on Broad street near the Sports Complex.

Officials were considering holding the parade on Wednesday. However, unsettled weather conditions featuring rain and a wintry mix would have made watching the parade in person unpleasant.

AccuWeather is projecting plenty of sunshine with a cold breeze for the parade. Fans should wear sunglasses but also bundle up.
