Northeast With a Chance of Peregrines

[Peregrine Falcon making a Cooper's Hawk's life difficult, from the Cape May, NJ hawk watch, September 2013.]

From the National Weather Service, 8:00 a.m. Friday, September 30 2016:

A frontal boundary will remain stationary to our south today
through Saturday with high pressure to our north, and an area of
low pressure to our west. The high pressure will begin to break
down Saturday night into Sunday. The low to our west will then
lift through the Great Lakes region and into the northeast over
the weekend, before weakening on Monday. This will pull the
frontal boundary across our area Sunday. High pressure builds to
our north for Tuesday into Thursday with a northeast flow across
the area.

High pressure + northeast + early October = Peregrine Falcons in Cape May, occasionally > 100 or even >200 a day. Just saying.

And watch next Monday and Tuesday for landbirds.
