Here is a wind trajectory map showing continued arrival of south winds, these ones from southern California. Southwestern North America (Texas, Mexico and southern California) is a source area for diamondback moth larvae and aster leafhoppers.

Diamondback moth adults are starting to show up in traps. See Alberta’s map. Aster leafhoppers have also been reported in Saskatchewan.
