More Cool Air On The Way…October 4th, 2012 at 5:18 pm by Mark Ronchetti under Weather
The first cold front of the week is now sitting over eastern NM. This front has dropped temps over eastern sections by up to 30°. The front is not deep enough to push into the metro so temps here will stay mild in the low 80′s on Friday. Then yet another front approaches and this blast has enough cold air to push through the canyons Saturday morning. The question is will the wind hold off long enough to allow for the first mass ascension of Balloon Fiesta. The issue will not just be limited to Saturday. Sunday morning winds are projected to be even higher. I am still hoping we can find a window both days for the balloons but it could be very difficult. Stay tuned.
