monday evening (11oct)>

have we turned the page?  we're currently enjoying the nicest evening in a long while... with partly cloudy skies, zero fog, zero thunder and zero rain.  it was a strange day... nice sunshine this morning, then a rapid increase in clouds and chilly wind which led to a short period of light showers between noon and 12:30pm (nothing measurable), which then transitioned into a mix of clouds and sun during the remainder of the afternoon.  today's high temp in upper mcleod ganj was 19.7C/67.5F.

it does look like our general weather pattern is changing... finally.  winds are turning more to the west-northwest in the upper atmosphere, and temperatures aloft have begun warming.  that's why another significant round of thundershowers was not able to get going today.  it might be a bit touch-and-go through tomorrow, with at least a slight chance of a passing thundershower, but i do expect drier and sunnier conditions to take hold as we head into the middle of the week.  as always, if you are trekking into the mountains during the afternoon and evening hours it is a good idea to be prepared for rapid changes... but in general, i think we are heading into a much more stable pattern.

MONDAY NIGHT: a few clouds this evening... but becoming clear overnight.
low: 13C (55F)

TUESDAY: sunny in the morning... with a mix of clouds and sun after noon.  a random, brief thundershower is possible.
