First image is of the winds aloft at 850 mb (approx 5000 ft). On shore westerly winds associated with some rain along the coast may push some migrants inland.  Check your local mud puddles for an influx of early shore birds.

Second image is a snapshot of the base velocity showing north to south directionality at a peak of 15 to 20 knots.

Third image is an animated gif with snapshots every half hour of the base reflectivity above radar station RTX.  Animation runs from around 8:00 pm pdst yesterday evening through 5:00 am pdst this morning. (Click on the thumbnails to view the full-sized images and animation.)
