04 Apr 2014 PNW Migration Update

Another cold front is moving in from the Pacific.  Lots of clouds and scattered precipitation.  In the loops we can see a wee bit of opportunistic migration but that’s about it.  It’s still early in the season and there are better days ahead.

Here is Paul’s archived National Radar Composite from yesterday.  The severe storms pounding the mid-west kept migrants restricted to the Gulf States last night.  The southern portion of the Pacific Flyway was quite active, and some of those birds are headed our way.

Next update will be on Monday the 7th.
