Recent Balloon Rides and Weather Forecast

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

The weather over the past weekend was pretty good for getting some early fall foliage flights in. We didn’t fly on Saturday due to the overnight rain and wind was a factor in cancelling the PM flight Saturday. On Sunday and early Monday, the balloon ride flying weather was perfect.

On Sunday morning, I flew a Private Flight for Rick and Patty from Glenville. It was Patty’s birthday present from Rick.

On Sunday evening, I flew Don and Carol from Highland NY and their grandson Jared.

On my Monday morning flight, I flew two couples, Gracielle and Manuel from Yonkers, and Steven and Jennifer from Troy.

Now for the weather forecast portion of this post, brings heavy rain and wind today, Tuesday. Right now as I write this post, it’s already pouring outside my window. The weather should begin to improve later on Wednesday as a high pressure system moves east. Looking toward the upcoming 40th Anniversary Adirondack Balloon Festival weather forecast for it’s opening ceremony on Thursday, it looks good for the balloons to fly from Crandall Park in Glens Falls that evening. The weather is currently forecast to hold thru early Saturday, with a front and an upper level low to affect the flying conditions for later on Saturday, and into Sunday and possibly Monday. I will post a weather update when we get closer to the weekend to fine-tune the outlook for doing our balloon rides into early next week.

Time to catch-up on some recent balloon rides—First up we have…

On the Monday evening flight, i had Bill and Lorna from Dunedin, FL on-board.

On the Tuesday morning balloon ride, I flew John Tartaglia and his family who are visiting the Lake George area from Rye, NY.

On Tuesday evening, Larry and Debby from Glenville celebrated a Private birthday Balloon Ride.

On Wednesday morning, I flew Bryon and Graham from Gaithersburg, MD, and Maria and John from Salem, NY.

That was it for hot air balloon rides for the week so far, due to weather and family in-town for a visit. The weather forecast for the week starts out good for Monday, before it goes downhill Tuesday and Wednesday, before it improves again for Thursday and Friday, and, it looks to go downhill again for at least part of the coming weekend.
