Windy Weekend Ahead for the Hunter Valley

We’re swapping hot air ballooning for kite flying this weekend…

Ballooning is weather dependent and the forecast of windy weather means we can fly our kite! The Bureau of Meteorology’s forecast for Saturday is for North Westerly winds 25 to 40 km/h turning Westerly 45 to 55 km/h in the morning then tending W/NW 30 to 45 km/h in the late afternoon. This is far in excess for what we call “flyable” for a Hunter Valley hot air balloon flight.
