tuesday evening (19oct)>

the temperature inversion that has kept moisture trapped near the surface since sunday, producing the gloomy haze and cloudiness, has only a couple of days left.  still watching a major pattern change which is on the way for the end of the week.  temperatures aloft will start cooling by thursday, as a strong upper air disturbance sweeps in from the northwest.  as this system moves through northern india on friday and saturday, it will interact with the moisture already in place to produce a bout of rain and thunderstorms.  a shot of much cooler air will accompany this system as well... especially in the higher mountains above 3000m/9800ft, where the first significant snow of the season will possibly occur.  let me reiterate... dangerous trekking and traveling conditions are quite likely in the mountains and higher passes of himachal pradesh from thursday night through saturday.
