Prediction for the Fish Fest Balloon

We’re planning to launch a small 300g Hwoyee ballon this time from Fish Fest at Lake Livingston TX. I ran a preliminary prediction with the CUSF Landing Predictor:


The track is very unusual, probably because you can’t really predict the wind direction this time of the year. However crossing the Mississippi seems to be a general problem. We’ve had this issue already on an earlier flight.

The Surface winds will be very calm in the morning, getting stronger towards evening with quite some turbulences above New Mexico and North Texas:

The general weather forecast looks favorable for a balloon launch. Maybe a bit hot as usual…
