By midday the winds had shifted, blowing from the southwest, a direction that usually stops the migration temporarily. But the winds are still very gentle. We should know better than to predict what's going to happen next. Last night we predicted that monarch numbers would decline over the next few days, and that's still our best guess, but we were wrong about that this morning and we could certainly be wrong tomorrow and the next day. Whatever happens, we promise to report back regularly.
