A trickle of migrants were apparent on the radar last night, as winds were generally out of the southeast, although they did die down to variable speed overnight. Here’s the radar from sunset last night through sunrise this morning.
Again, use the velocity to determine the direction and speed of movement across the radar. You’ll see that the majority of movement is from the south to north, indicating something moving with the prevailing winds. The “birds” are seen at higher altitude (away from the center point of the image, which is the location of the radar station) and are moving from north to south.
