Weather forecast

Of course, we can’t plan to have a parade without being sure of favorable weather. We need to know if the weather will keep the balloons from flying? So, according to CNN Meteorologist Judson Jones, all balloons should go ahead and fly as there is no indication of winds near the threshold. Jones said, “the weather will be crisp and beautiful. It may be a little bit cold in the early hours, the upper 30s to lower 40s. But by the time Santa hits Herald Square, it will be mostly sunny with a temperature of about 50 degrees, if not a bit warmer.” So, I guess the parade party can go on.
