|Note the oncoming "H", a sys-|
tem around which winds rota-
Did you think last night's report was short? Wait until you read this one:
Thanks to an oncoming high pressure system, Illinois is currently occupied by strong, northwesterly winds. This means, you guessed it, essentially no migration in Illinois tonight. So that's that.
The forecast, at least for the next two days, doesn't include any nights wherein all of Illinois is favorable for migration. Tomorrow night, only the furthest western edge of the state is forecast to have westerly winds tomorrow. Friday night, Southern and Central Illinois is forecast to have southerly winds, so if the forecast holds up, Saturday morning may be good for your lists.
That's all for tonight, folks. As always, if you're curious about what birds are out there tonight, look no further than this handy eBird page.
Good birding everyone!
