sunday evening (3oct)>

it's cloudy and foggy here in the main square of mcleod ganj only a few minutes before sunset.  there were no surprises today... nice morning sunshine, with increasing clouds throughout the mid-day, afternoon and evening hours.  although i hear reports of some light showers above dharamkot... there was not so much as a sprinkle in mcleod.  today's high on tushita road just below the mountaineering center was 21C/70F.

satellite pics this evening show quite a few thundershowers hugging the mountains of central kashmir, himachal pradesh, and northern uttar anchal.  the trekkers might be a little disturbed, but it looks like very few populated areas are being affected.  the general weather scenario will change little during the next several days... still, our recent pattern of morning sun with an afternoon build-up of clouds will prevail.  it is impossible to rule out a random/passing thundershower at some point during the PM hours during the next 2-3 days, as cold air aloft keeps things a bit unstable over the mountains.  but other than that, we are in a holding pattern... our recent temperatures, humidity levels and mix of sun and clouds will keep on keepin on.
