Weather:
Cool temps today ranging from 31-39. Wind calm in the morning until it
picked up around noon and stayed strong (11-15 with gusts to 18) for the
rest of the day. Snow appeared in flurries and strong wind and was more
welcome than rain. Clouds covered the sky until the afternoon when the sun
came out for a beautiful - yet cold - day.

Raptor Observations:
BE(2): 1359a, 1359a
GE(6): 1042i, 1148u, 1157i, 1157a, 1307i, 1526a

Non-raptor Observations:
Loons (not us hawkwatchers!) soared south today high in the sky. Groups of
11, 2 and 7, crossed the ridge flapping constantly.

Predictions:
Sunny, with a high near 39. Northwest wind 10 to 15 mph.
