For the first time in 15 years, Malverne Mel’s annual forecast will be delayed due to bad weather.

Malverne Mayor Patricia Norris-McDonald made the decision yesterday after reports of dangerous, icy conditions for the morning. It’s the first time in 15 years the village has canceled the annual event.

Although the public celebration was canceled, Malverne Mel will make an appearance inside Village Hall at 9 a.m.
