Predictions:
Sunday: Periods of rain. Windy in the afternoon. High 15C. Winds SSE
shifting WSW at 30-50km/h. Good wind direction but rain and clouds could
prevent a flight. Hard to predict, but I wouldn't be surprised if some
vultures and hawks push through.

Monday: Sunny with strong winds. High 7C. Winds WNW at 30-50km/h. Expect
light migration.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny. High 19C. Winds S shifting SW at 15-30km/h. This is
the day to watch. Expect good migration!
