One of the most dangerous weather conditions balloonists face is thunderstorms. During the pre-flight weather briefing, balloon pilots want radar summaries to show thunderstorms no closer than 100 miles from the flight area. In flight, the pilot constantly looks for changing conditions which could signal convective activity. At the first sign of building cumulus clouds, rapidly changing wind direction on the surface, or other such indicators, the balloon should get on the ground as quickly as possible.
