A major storm system is projected to move from the central Plains Thursday
to Illinois Friday  and Ohio by Sunday. A very strong southwesterly flow
will set up ahead of this storm across much of the eastern U.S into PA and
parts of NY state. I imagine with the chilly weather and delayed spring a
lot of our earlier migrants, like loons/grebes, waterfowl, gulls, terns etc
are going to stream north toward NY.  Some of us many see temperatures
climb into the 70s especially southern parts of the state! But
unfortunately, a frontal system is projected to drop south and stall  over
upstate NY Friday from about Buffalo to Albany and Saturday close to the
NY/PA border. It will be much chillier north of the front with northerly
winds. Hence, this front could be a zone where birds drop out leading to
fallout conditions and lots of migrants and maybe even some rarities.
Wherever this front sets up should be awesome.

Good luck and good birding to all!
