sunday morning (10oct)>

coolest morning of the season... with 12C/54F in upper mcleod ganj before sunrise.  skies are clear.

it will be interesting to see how much longer our october "mini-monsoon" will last.  we've had at least some rainfall on 7 of the last 8 days... and i've recorded a total of 3" (7.6cm) during that time.  you know the story by now, all the available computer model guidance keeps reducing rain chances to zero... but that has not been reflected in reality.  at this point, it's just a day-by-day proposition to watch and see when the atmosphere will stabilize enough to put a cap on this afternoon thundershower action.  i am becoming more confident that we'll see improvements during the coming week.  temperatures aloft will begin to warm up, relative to temps at the surface... and that is a recipe for a much more settled weather scenario.  as far as temperatures here at ground-level... it's starting to cool down to where it should be this time of year.
