The weather cooperated and all Balloon Fiesta events have been giving the green flag to go. Dawn patrol started about 30 minutes late due to wind, but the Special Shapes Rodeo started right on time.
Over the next couple days, weather for Friday’s launch is looking good, but Saturday is looking a little colder and on the breezy side.
Due to tropical storm Simon, the metro received rain overnight, but will be dry for the next few hours. Later today, there could be isolated showers which may affect the Balloon Fiesta glow and fireworks.
Friday and Saturday are both looking dry and sunny.
