Weather:
Overcast, cloudy and hazy day. Cooler in the morning but got a lot warmer
later. Winds from the S to SW.

A very light flight today.



Predictions:
Monday looks good for SW winds and since this is primetime for the
Peregrines to move it could be the day to come down and check out the
cliff.
