wednesday morning (13oct)>

it's another totally clear morning, with a pre-sunrise temperature of 14C/57F in upper mcleod ganj.  we've had no rainfall in the past 24 hours.

i always get a bit nervous to completely remove rain chances from the forecast... but it really does look like we are in line for some nice, quiet, dry weather for at least a few days.  there was more sun yesterday afternoon than we've had in weeks... as the afternoon clouds were much less widespread, thick and ominious than they have been.  this is thanks to the significant warming that is occurring aloft.  warmer air in the mid- and upper levels of the atmosphere acts as a cap, and effectively shuts down thundershower development.  if you plan to be trekking, climbing or overnighting in the mountains, it is still a good idea to be prepared for a sudden storm... but for the most part, it does look like the quiet autumn weather is here for a while...
