Predictions:
We are starting to get into broad-winged hawk season. Accuracy of
predictions will vary depending on what route large groups of broad-wings
take this year. The last two years the peak day has been around September
23rd, but it could easily come a week earlier if weather conditions are
right.

Wednesday: Clouds and sun. High 32C. Winds SW at 10-15km/h. Expect light
migration.

Thursday: Partly cloudy early with chance of thunderstorms in the
afternoon. High 31C. Winds NNW at 10-15km/h. Expect light to moderate
migration.

Friday: Cloudy. High 23C. Winds E at 15-25km/h. Expect light migration.
