Key West radar down + forecast

The radar feed for Key West was down last night, but after checking it this morning there wasn’t any noticeable migration.

I just read this on the Key West weather discussion:

.EQUIPMENT…
KBYX RADAR REMAINS DOWN DUE TO A TRANSMITTER FAILURE. PARTS ARE ON
ORDER…AND THE EARLIEST RETURN TO SERVICE WOULD BE LATER THIS EVENING
IF PARTS ARRIVE THIS AFTERNOON.

So hopefully they’ll have it resolved before tonight.

It looks like Florida will be under easterly winds for the foreseeable future, which isn’t optimal for migration, especially this early in the season. I’ll keep an eye on the radar and see if birds do, in fact, decide to make the crossing regardless of the winds.

Good Birding!
