Weather could stop the iconic balloons from appearing in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Officials in New York say windy conditions are expected next week.
New York City rules state the balloons can not fly in sustained winds that exceed 23 miles per hour. Wind gusts over 34 miles per hour would also sideline the balloons.
Right now, the weather forecast for sustained winds do not exceed the regulations, but the gusts do.
There is some good news, this year’s temperatures are expected to be in the mid-40s so people won’t be freezing as usual.
