|The big L|
An interesting, though not very migrant-filled report tonight. Currently, a low pressure system is sitting over north-central Illinois, and looking at the wind map, its counterclockwise rotation is obvious. Unfortunately, in most areas, this rotation means unfavorable winds, be they westerly, easterly, or northerly. Only in a small slice of Illinois are the winds southerly, and a storm system is currently sitting right over that area. Storm activity is also present around the center of the system. Needless to say, there isn't much migration occurring tonight (moderate at most in some places), but it's interesting to watch the winds of the low pressure system, especially on such a beautiful wind map.

One final note. Tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday night I will be out camping, and will be unable to post migration reports. Never fear, though! You can make your own observations and predictions here:
