The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta kicks off this weekend in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This is a festival that started in 1972 and has grown to become the largest hot air balloon event in the world, attracting almost 600 balloons and 1000 pilots, and thousands of spectators. So, the question is, will the weather cooperate for this world-renown event? The answers is, "it depends." The latest forecast for Albuquerque calls for severe storms just east of the city for the next two days. After that rain is likely on Monday and then again on Friday. Other temperatures will range in the upper 40s this weekend, then low 40s for much of next week. During the day, temperatures this weekend will reach into the low and 70s, then drop into the low 60s for the first part of the week, followed by upper 60s and low 70s toward the end of the weekend. It will likely also be very breezy over the next week. The most questionable days for weather will be Sunday, Monday and Friday. Other than that, the festival carry on without any major issues.
