monday morning (11oct)>

yet another crystal clear sky early this morning... with a temp of 13C/55F.  satellite pics show a lone cluster of thunderstorms right along the pakistan/kashmir border, otherwise clear skies prevail across the rest of north india and nepal.

during the past 9 days, we've had 3.09" (7.8cm) of rain in upper mcleod ganj... the heaviest of which occurred last friday afternoon/evening when we had more than an inch in about an hour.  but... i am seeing some promising signs for the week ahead, finally.  temperatures in the upper atmosphere will be warming up steadily, which will gradually put a cap on the afternoon thundershower development.  although we've had nice sunshine every morning for the last couple of weeks, we are overdue to get into the pattern of all day sunshine that normally takes root this time of year.  i'm still going to include a shot at some PM thundershowers today... but chances will diminish considerably for the rest of the week.. with a trend toward increasing amounts of afternoon sunshine.

MONDAY: sunny skies this morning.  becoming partly to mostly cloudy around noon, with one or two afternoon thundershowers possible.
high: 20C (68F)

MONDAY NIGHT: any evening showers quickly ending... then becoming mostly clear.
low: 13C (55F)

TUESDAY: sunny in the morning, with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon.  only a slight chance of a brief PM thundershower.
high: 21C (69F)

WEDNESDAY: morning sun... a mix of sun and clouds in the PM.
high: 21C (70F)

THURSDAY: sunny to partly cloudy skies.
high: 21C (70F)

FRIDAY: mostly sunny and very comfortable.
high: 21C (69F)
