11/6 IL Migration Report

(Please excuse the lack of photos...Blogger is being slightly glitchy, presumably as a result of recent Google updates)

Hey folks,

So sadly, it doesn't look like we'll be getting two nights of moderate migration out of these conditions. Though winds are still favorably northwesterly, high pressure is beginning to move into our area, and if there's one thing that fall migration has taught me this year, it's that migrants don't really like high pressure. Though we are experiencing light migration in some places right now, I'm not expecting an big arrivals tomorrow.

Looking forward a couple days, winds forecast to be southerly in most of the state by tomorrow morning. These winds are then forecast to become gradually stronger and more westerly; strong westerly winds will be dominant by early Saturday afternoon. We'll see what happens with that.

Cool. Happy birding everyone!
