friday morning (28jan)>

the air feels a bit milder this morning, and the thermometer reflects that... with an early morning temp of 5C (41F).  i'm still watching a storm system develop and slowly move eastward across afghanistan.  this system will cause a gradual increase in our cloud cover today, and then lead to a better and better chance of some rain and snow showers from late tonight through sunday.  this is not a major storm, but measurable rainfall and accumulating snowfall are likely across our area over the weekend.  right now, i think accumulating snow will be above mcleod ganj (more likely in naddi and dharamkot), due to the warmer air getting pulled in from the south... but it will be fun to keep a close eye on it as it develops, to see if the snow potential increases a little further down the mountain.

most of the precipitation will be out of here by late sunday... with dry weather expected on monday and tuesday.  however, it looks like there is a stronger storm lurking on the horizon for the middle and latter parts of next week...
