A major storm system is projected to move from the central Plains Thursday to Illinois Friday and Ohio by Sunday. A very strong southwesterly flow will set up ahead of this storm across much of the eastern U.S into PA and parts of NY state. I imagine with the chilly weather and delayed spring a lot of our earlier migrants, like loons/grebes, waterfowl, gulls, terns etc are going to stream north toward NY. Some of us many see temperatures climb into the 70s especially southern parts of the state! But unfortunately, a frontal system is projected to drop south and stall over upstate NY Friday from about Buffalo to Albany and Saturday close to the NY/PA border. It will be much chillier north of the front with northerly winds. Hence, this front could be a zone where birds drop out leading to fallout conditions and lots of migrants and maybe even some rarities. Wherever this front sets up should be awesome.
