Sept 28, 2015
Tonight, Illinois is again experiencing only negligible to light levels of migration, as evidenced by the current national composite radar (http://tempest.aos.wisc.edu/radar/us3comp.gif), due to dominating southerly winds. Of course, tomorrow (Monday) morning should be as good as any to get out while there is still a moderate variety of warblers and other migrants about; however, no huge arrivals or influxes should be expected.
Tomorrow night, winds are forecast to shift to be out of the north; however, showers are expected over much of the state which could disrupt migration then. I will be monitoring the situation closely weather-wise.
To predict exactly which species you are likely to find and when, please consult:
