friday morning (1oct)>

we have clear skies and 15C/59F early this morning.  satellite pics show very little happening across pakistan, northern india and nepal.

expect our daily dose of morning sunshine to continue right through the forecast period.  we'll still get a build-up of clouds during the afternoon hours, but as threatening as they may look at times, no significant rainfall is expected.  there was some thunder over the mountains yesterday afternoon... but frankly that could occur on just about any day during this time of year.  i am a little concerned about a series of weak upper-level disturbances that will wobble through northern india during the first part of next week.  although instability and moisture are minimal, there is a chance we could see a couple of rounds of random thundershowers.  any rainfall that does occur should be quite light, though.  extended guidance from the computer models is showing pretty stable temperatures into the middle of next week...
