Hunter weather for the next few days
Posted Thursday, April 10th, 2014
A mixed bag of weather in the Hunter Valley this week.
Not looking like a nice settled week ahead of us. After enjoying a week of light winds and very little rain it looks like it could all be about to change. The valley is still very wet from the recent rainfall and although flying above the lush green Hunter Valley in a balloon is a pleasure, driving into the wet and sometimes boggy paddocks to get the balloon back can be a challenge. To make things even more of a challenge there is more rain on the way.
The wind is on the increase over the next few days with rain forecast for Friday morning and then showers for the weekend. As well as the showers, the wind will be picking up from the northwest. Forecasts do change every 6 hours so we never decide if we are going ballooning until the day before. Keep your fingers crossed that we will be drifting above the valley this weekend “in my beautiful balloon…..”
