The meteorologists are predicting northeast or east winds for the next four days. These are not winds the usually bring many monarchs into Cape May, so we're expecting a bit of a lull in the migration. If you're coming to Cape May, don't despair, there will still be monarchs around the Point, and probably in numbers greater than you'll find in most other locales. But we don't expect the next surge of migrating monarch to arrive until the wind switches back around to the northwest. The current forecast calls for northwest winds next Tuesday and Wednesday. Let's hope the forecast holds. This is prime time for monarch migration, there are many more that we're sure to see traveling through Cape May Point during the next four weeks.
