East winds and no migration


At least that’s the story for south Florida, and it appears to be similar for the rest of the Sunshine State. Unfortunately the Miami radar was down last night, so I could only get a feed from Key West and the Florida composite…so here it is, from sunset last night through 5:00am this morning.

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.

I don’t see any migration from central Florida southward, and some questionable signals in northern Florida. Without being able to check the actual radar (the real-time radar site is down this morning as well…) it’s hard for me to confirm one way or the other. My guess is that migration was minimal along the FL/GA/AL border.

Good Birding! 🙂



  1. Make that “Frustrated Ladies…” Migrants are nonexistent here on Key Biscayne. East winds are still strong here and it will be interesting to see if birders report migrants from spots farther inland.
