Another cold front

Monarch numbers have been fairly steady in recent days, with no spectacular flights or concentrations, but with a fair number of monarchs still hanging around the gardens and dunes of Cape May Point.  Another cold front is passing through Cape May Wednesday evening, however, with northwest winds forecast to blow all night and up to the early Thursday afternoon, when they are forecast to turn west.  These are good conditions for monarch migration, so if there's still a good number of monarchs to our north, we can expect them to move into Cape May tomorrow.  One thing for sure: our team will be out there working, and we'll let you know what we find.
