final rainfall reports for the past couple of days have been very consistent from dharamsala through the mcleod ganj area... generally in the 1.0-1.5" (2.2-2.9cm) range. thanks to our local weather observers for passing along the info! there have been reports of hail and strong, gusty winds as well, mostly on friday.
there is gradual improvement in progress, as the upper-level low pressure center responsible for the stormy weather shifts into extreme western tibet and continues to weaken. it looks like we have several days of quiet weather on the way... with lots of morning sunshine, but the usual build-up of afternoon clouds over the mountains. as the middle and upper levels of the atmosphere warm up this week, we should see increasing amounts of sunshine, though, with temperatures remaining near or a bit below normal for this time of year. the next storm system is currently poised to make an appearance toward the very end of the coming week... bringing another good chance of showers and thunderstorms, along with more mountain snows. stay tuned...
