Hot Air Balloon Ride Flying Weather Update for Columbus Weekend

After our area has gotten between 4-8 inches of rain for the last week, we get some drying heading into the long Columbus Holiday Weekend and into the following week, which is my last week of flying for this year. My last flight will be on the 17th. According to the National Weather Service forecast, the forecast discussion from Albany NWS, and forecast weather maps for the coming week, the best flying opportunities appear to be the Saturday PM flight, both flights on Sunday and Monday morning. There is a chance of rain forecast for later on Monday and Tuesday, but the forecast computer models are not in agreement if and when the precipitation will happen. The 7 day forecast maps show that next Wednesday will offer good flying conditions, and whether that will extend to Tuesday PM and Thursday, I have no clarity at this time.
