saturday evening (9oct)>

our saturday has turned out cooler and cloudier than expected... the sunshine was pretty much gone by 11am, and the high temp only reached 17.5C/63.5F in upper mcleod ganj.  showers during the afternoon delivered the following amounts of rain (along with some small hail):
-near main temple... 0.75" (1.9cm)
-upper mcleod ganj...0.63" (1.6cm)

we still have a nice big pool of cold air in the upper atmosphere, which is keeping things rather unstable here in the mountains of north india.  as we saw this morning, it only took a little sunshine to warm up the surface and destabilize the atmosphere.  once again, the computer models are rapidly bringing in some warmer temps aloft, thus cutting off the rain chances.  i think it's wise to continue to expect afternoon thundershowers for another couple of days.  eventually, we are going to get some stunning dry and sunny autumn weather around here, but things are running a bit behind schedule this year.  i really do think that we will see improvement by the middle of next week... but stay tuned to see how it all unfolds...
