Tiny movements

I’m considering changing the name of this blog to “More radar than you can shake a stick at”.

Below are the southeast composite reflectivity, and the reflectivity and velocity animations for the Key West and Miami radars. Very VERY little was moving last night, with a small trickle out of Cuba and a small push out of southeast Florida evident on the radar. I’ve inserted a graphic around the birds leaving the Miami radar to hopefully clear up any confusion on the images. Most of the movement across the radar was from the NW –> SE due to the strong prevailing winds (you can see this in the velocity image), but after sunset there is a small movement of birds from the S –> N. I don’t think any of this will be apparent on the ground except maybe for the decrease in birds in SE Florida. There was no migration apparent on the radars for central and northern Florida.

Good Birding

Frames are every 1/2 hour for reflectivity and velocity, and 1 hour for the regional composite
