Maybe it won't rain on our parade.McMinnville's annual Christmas parade is set for this Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and rain is not in the forecast. According to AccuWeather, sunny skies and temperatures in the high 50s are expected for Saturday afternoon.That's a stark contrast to the beginning of the week when McMinnville experienced three days of nearly constant rain.Beginning on Sunday afternoon and ending early Wednesday morning, McMinnville received 4.9 inches of rain, according to the official total kept at the water plant. That includes 1.4 inches on Sunday, 1.4 inches on Monday, 1.6 inches on Tuesday, and half an inch early Wednesday.To put the 4.9 inches in perspective, that's nearly a month's worth of rain.
