CNJ staff

Two hot air balloon shows were canceled Saturday due to weather, but this morning’s ascension will go off as scheduled, weather permitting of course.
The Bank of Clovis Balloon Jamboree balloon ascension at a site north of the Plains Regional Medical Center is slated for 6 a.m. this morning. Saturday morning’s launch was canceled because of high winds.
Saturday evening’s Balloon Glow and Firestorm at Greene Acres Lake was canceled due to rain. Clovis received inch-sized hail near the hospital and .12 inches of rain Saturday evening, according to the National Weather Service in Albuquerque and Cannon Air Force Base.
