We currently have a surface low pressure system off Delmarva, with the
precipitation shield just to the south of Long Island. There is a small
chance, about 1/3, that it becomes a subtropical or tropical cyclone. It
should bring a lot of rain to many areas. There may also be some decent wind
involved. The point is that it's a large system, fairly well organized, with
some power to it. It's certainly nothing to be worried about, but it's
notable for what it could do in terms of birds. There is a good chance it
could bring up something as it slowly moves up the coast, or throw some
birds from the ocean to the shores. Keep a close eye on this tonight and
tomorrow. It has come all the way up from Bermuda, and it is coming at a
time when many birds are already moving around. There will be a rarity or
two found somewhere. Good luck.
