Predictions:
Saturday: Mix of sun and clouds early then cloudy. High 10C. Winds WSW at
10-15km/h. Chance of an afternoon lake breeze. Good wind direction so I
would expect a good raptor flight until the lake breeze kicks in.

Sunday: Mostly sunny. High 12C. Winds NW at 10-15km/h. Expect moderate
migration.

Monday: Mix of sun and clouds. High 11C. Winds NNW at 10-15km/h. Expect
light to moderate migration.
