First image is of the winds aloft at 850 mb (approx 5000 ft). Winds over the state were mild and should have little effect on migration.  There were some 20 knot winds just offshore — not sure if that will impact terrestrial migration.

Second image is a snapshot of the base velocity showing north to south directionality at a peak of 20 to 25 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.)

Sunset last night was at 8:17 pm pdst.

Density was much lighter than yesterday.
