Light migration + forecast

 

Light migration over Florida last night, as easterlies persist in the south, and southerlies persist along the frontal boundary just north of the state. You can see the front on the Southeast composite, acting as a barrier to the heavy migration to the north. Still, there was a little migration over Florida, with the Miami radar showing some activity, and the Key West radar showing a small push of birds from the mainland to the lower keys. No birds were seen leaving the Keys for Cuba, however. Once this front clears Florida, we should see a good push of migrants into the state.

Frames are every 1/2 hour for reflectivity and velocity, and every hour for the regional composite. Click on the thumbnail to view the full-sized animation. Click on the thumbnail to view the full-sized animation.

Good Birding! :)
