As mentioned in yesterdays birding forecast, high pressure has started to move away and tropical moisture is invading the state. We need the water as it has been a dry year in FL. Even with the recent summer rains we have seen the water levels are still low.

Not much was going on last night in terms of nocturnal migration over the state. You can see the frontal boundary working its way east in the SE mosaic radar loop. The front is expected to drag down migrants as soon as tonight. NW winds will build behind this mid to upper-level low which should trigger a flight into the Panhandle. As far as the rest of the state we all await the change in conditions hoping it brings on some new arrivals in the near future.
