Another shorter report tonight. Winds, for once, are exactly as predicted tonight, being westerly-based to varying degrees depending on your location. The real news tonight is the storm systems sweeping over Illinois. Having passed through most of the state already, this massive squall line has basically dampened down any migration. As a result, radar in Illinois is mostly dark right now. SO, throughout the state, though migration may pick up a little as the night goes on, I would not expect much in the way of influx tomorrow morning.
Given that prediction, let's look further ahead! Tomorrow night is forecast to be dominated by weak, northerly winds, so, again, little is likely to be migrating. But Saturday and Sunday nights are still forecast to hold southerly winds in store. If you're looking for which mornings might be most productive to search out migrants, wind forecasts direct our attention to Sunday and Monday mornings. If you're curious about what you may find out there, look no further than this handy-dandy eBird page.
Hopefully, I'll be out there with you! Good birding, all.
