Weather:
Cold and overcast with bitter WNW sustained winds at 15 to 20 mph. Winds
changed to WSW about noon but the winds continued all day. Temperature
increased from 0 to 4 Celsius. The skies cleared a bit around noon then
clouded over again and finally cleared again for the last hour and a half.

Raptor Observations:
No raptors during the first hour. A few Turkey vultures and a couple of
Red-tails went through between 10:00am and 1:00pm. TVs picked up a bit
during the remainder of the count with the WSW wind and a little heat from
the greater amount of sunshine.

Non-raptor Observations:
Not much non-raptor movement.

Predictions:
Forecast calls for temperatures to be about 4C (40F) at 8am to about 19C
(64F) at 4pm with SSW winds at 15 to 25 mph - windy, but possibly a good
migration day.
