tuesday evening (12oct)>

we have partly cloudy, semi-hazy skies in mcleod ganj this evening.  other than clouds over the mountains during the afternoon hours, we had lots of sunshine today... with a high temp of 20.2C/68.4F.

it appears that we've finally broken out of our 10-day spell of afternoon thundershowers that started back on saturday the 2nd of october.  for the first time this autumn season, the pattern is finally starting to adapt to what it SHOULD look like this time of year.  it really is way past time to get rid of this instability that causes thick clouds and thunder to develop during the PM hours day after day.  right now, the temperatures in the middle and upper atmosphere are warming, compared to temps at the surface.  that spells stable conditions for the next several days... meaning... the morning sun will continue, but it should stretch into the afternoon hours as well.  there remains an outside chance of a random shower or a bit of thunder over the mountains during the mid-late afternoon hours, but by and large, dry weather will dominate.  pleasantly mild temps will continue by day, with comfortably cool temps by night...
