137 visitors


Weather:
Chilly start to the morning with a brisk breeze gusting to 18 mph. As the
breeze subsided temperatures slowly rose from the low 40's to near 60.

Raptor Observations:
Not what one would expect with a light NE wind and birds seemingly backed
up from the previous warm spell.

Non-raptor Observations:
13 Monarchs
874 Canada Geese


Predictions:
Rain moves in around midnight and might clear the area by early afternoon.
The big question is when will the summit be free of a low overcast.
