01 September 2015 – Migration Update

Looking at the wind mapping you can see that the inland pipeline is still being hampered by strong southerlies, especially in BC.  But the strong fliers coming out of Alaska may just hitch a ride out over the ocean and pass up Washington and Northern Oregon.  Eh, who knows.

In any event, migration in the metro area was muted and probably limited to reshuffling.  So lets take a look at the National Composite (thanks Paul!).  Pretty muted, but more widespread — except for this season’s darling – Duluth!

So i cherry picked that loop; and note the EXTREME radar returns way into the 30 dBZ zone, which is off the charts crazy.
