0800-0930/light and variable winds/partly cloudy/31-33 degrees

The ducks are moving in, about two weeks early, which is right on schedule per the water temperature.
Oklahoma has experienced several days of colder than normal temperature due to northern snowstorms ad wind movement over the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.  A number of unnatural avian movements are also expected from the north, and this is a year that I expect a number of unusual species due to
weather patterns.
