A pretty decent flight last night with some cells of heavy movement along the Cascades.  There continues to be heavy flight form Vancouver Island across the Straight – i put a snap shot from the ATX station in today’s gallery.

The low pressure system we’ve been watching is inching toward the coast line and has made it into the evening news weather cycle.  In the two wind charts you can see how well organized it is and it is packing some serious wind.  When this arrives the winds will be stiffly out of the south and will, most likely, be carrying some precipitation with it.  This will put the brakes on any regional migration.  As long as it lasts, birds will be staging to our north and flooding south at the next opening.  This will probably happen after i shutter the blog for the season, but i’ll keep an eye on the radar and post about any significant movement resulting from our first fall storm.
