sunday morning (17oct)>

100% clear yet again this morning... with a temperature of 16C/61F here in upper mcleod ganj.

**UPDATE @ 850AM**  strangely, a lot of haze and light fog has developed in the couple of hours since sunrise.  visibilities are already quite limited from my vantage point up here at the top of mcleod ganj.  if this keeps up, our sunshiny sunday is going to be spoiled, and temps will be a bit cooler than expected!!**

if you liked yesterday, you will be equally pleased with today.  we'll have unlimited sunshine again until the early afternoon hours, when a few puffy cumulus clouds will develop over the mountains.  the atmosphere is very stable these days, which means it is nearly impossible for those cumulus clouds to grow into showers and thunderstorms, as they did for about 9 days in a row during the afternoons earlier this month.  as i've been mentioning, there are indications of some weak instability for monday and tuesday, but i am getting more and more doubtful that anything will come of it.  for now, i'll include a slight chance of a PM thundershower on those days.  the other thing to watch is the potential for a major shift in the pattern by the latter part of the week... which could bring a turn to cooler temperatures, and possibly some rainfall.  but most of that lies just beyond this forecast period...
