Official Counter: Jerry McWilliams

Observers:

Weather:
Cloudy with light snow showers in the AM becoming clear with cold WNW wind
in the PM.

Raptor Observations:
Not much happening as expected with the lake wind. Probably should have
stayed later since the wind shifted and started coming strong out of the SW
in mid- to late afternoon.

Non-raptor Observations:


Predictions:
SW wind for part of the morning turning slightly to a westerly direction by
late morning through afternoon then back around to SW later in the day.
Warmer than today. Not sure what to expect. Tuesday is shaping up to have
the best conditions for a flight.
