Predictions:
The forcasters are calling for much improved conditions with the morning
beginning mostly cloudy with NW winds an a 50% chance of showers. Winds
should back to the West as the day progresses and the cloud cover should
break up. Temps will be much more comfortable for birds and man with
morning lows around 19 and afternoon highs near 23.
