> Weather:
> Blustery east northeast winds swept over the summit for the majority of the day, becoming calm by the last thirty minutes of the count. Snow flurries came and went multiple times over the coarse of the day, never amounting to anything on the ground. My brand new thermometer was working like a champ, telling me the highest air temperature of the day was a whopping 37 degrees, but the windchill made it feel closer to the high twenties. Visibility was good overall, except for the occasional snowfall.

> Raptor Observations:
> More Eagle activity over Pownal.
>
> Non-raptor Observations:
> Only 10 species were detected from the summit today.
>
> Predictions:
> Winds still don't appear to be ideal tomorrow, coming mostly from the north and possibly a little easterly. Wind speed however, should be relatively light, at 10 mph. It looks like the sun should be out during the day, helping to bump the temperature up to a more seasonable 40 degrees. With a bit more sun to help produce thermals, maybe we'll see the return of some more Turkey Vultures.
