From article:

Migrating monarchs will no doubt appreciate the hospitality. The migration moves like a wave, starting in southern Canada and gathering numbers as it moves south. Monarchs coming from areas east of the Rocky Mountains head for wintering sites in Mexico. A smaller number of monarchs from west of the Rockies spend the cold months on the California coast, Sarikonda said.

The wave is expected to reach Northeast Ohio in the second and third week of September.

My sister got lucky several years ago - her place in san Antonio tx was right in the middle of the migration.  She sent lots of pics to us of her trees in the back covered in Monarch butterflys.  That was the only time that happened.
