The weather seems to have settled into a typical summertime patten with 
upper winds relatively light and SE (and the temperatures are more like 
mid-June than early May as well!). This afternoon trans-Gulf migrants seem 
to be scant except at Brownsville which is showing a strong incoming 
flight. These may continue N offshore or reorient NE toward the upper 
Texas/southwest Louisiana coast. And the flight may arrive at more 
northerly sites later this afternoon.Brownsville is 5 degrees of latitude 
south of Lake Charles and it is obvious that a trans-Gulf migration would 
arrive there first.
