friday evening (8oct)>

it is raining yaks and mountain goats this evening... after a period of much lighter thundershower activity early in the afternoon.  rain is falling quite heavily at the moment... so i'll have some significant rainfall totals to report later this evening.  check back here for that.  the high temp around noon (before the clouds and thunder) was 20.7C/69.3F.

**rainfall update @ 740pm... i recorded 1.12" (2.8cm) of rain here in upper mcleod ganj this afternoon and evening.  that brings the october total to 2.37" (6cm).**

well i am very glad i didn't buy the computer models' deceptive tactics.  for the past 3 days, they keep trying to drive this instability out of here, and decrease rain chances to near zero... but without fail, we continue to see potent thundershowers/storms in the afternoons and early evenings.  i am STILL not seeing a dramatic change in the overall weather pattern... so i am strongly inclined to keep PM rain in the forecast for the next few days.  so far, this increasingly stable airmass advertised by the computer models appears to be just fantasy!  so... expect more morning sun, along with the potential for things to turn rapidly ugly in the afternoons.  temps have been very consistent from day to day... with overnight lows around 14C (57-58F) and daytime highs around 20-21C (69-71F).  no major changes in that department in the foreseeable future...

FRIDAY NIGHT: showers and thunderstorms this evening will end after sunset... with skies becoming clear to partly cloudy overnight.
low: 14C (57F)

SATURDAY: mostly sunny in the morning.  increasing clouds around noon, with a couple of thundershowers likely during the afternoon/evening.
high: 21C (70F)

SUNDAY: morning sun, then some afternoon clouds with a good chance of a period of thundershowers.
high: 21C (69F)

MONDAY: sunshine in the morning will give way to partly cloudy skies in the afternoon.  still a risk of a PM thundershower.
high: 21C (69F)

TUESDAY: sunny to partly cloudy skies.
high: 20C (68F)

WEDNESDAY: a mixture of sun and clouds.
high: 20C (68F)
