Another Front!

This is the radar from 6:00pm last night to 7:00am this morning.

Frames are every 1/2 hour. Click on the thumbnail to view the full-sized animation.

Birds were on the move last night as a front made it’s way into the State. A high pressure system is causing the front to stall out over the big bend are of the panhandle and will slow the fronts progress into central Florida. Birds were making their way south ahead of all the weather and continued south into the Miami radar. Should be new birds around today with some new winter migrants as well. Good birding to all and check back later for a full interpretation of last nights radar.
