> Predictions:
> We should be back in business tomorrow, with some breaks of sun earlier in the day and becoming more overcast by the afternoon hours. Winds could be relatively strong out of the northwest at 10-15mph, which is okay, but not ideal. There should be some melting of the recent snow, with temperatures reaching into the 40's. Hopefully the snow melts quickly, so as not to deter these birds any longer. With fresh snow, I would expect minimal thermal production, which could keep birds lower, providing photo opportunities for hawkwatchers who make to the mountain. See you on the mountain!
