saturday evening (22jan)>

i think we all could agree that this has been a fine saturday.  despite the occasional cloudiness here and there, sunshine was the dominant factor... and the temp in mcleod ganj topped out at a rather mild 50.5F (10.3C).

there are no significant storm systems on the horizon at all.  as i've mentioned recently, little pools of cold air in the upper atmosphere will drift through from time to time, and could produce enough instability to stir up a brief, isolated shower in the afternoons.  but honestly, chances are so slim (less than 20%), that for now, i've decided to mostly leave the precipitation out of the forecast.  temperatures should remain fairly steady... but there are now indications that by tuesday, some slightly colder air will spill southward from central asia. so, in general, our period of fairly nice mid-winter weather will continue...

SATURDAY NIGHT: mostly clear skies.
low: 4C (39F)

SUNDAY: mostly sunny in the morning, with a few clouds during the afternoon.
high: 11C (51F)

MONDAY: partly to mostly sunny skies.
high: 11C (51F)

TUESDAY: a mix of clouds and sunshine.  just a slight chance of an isolated PM shower.
high: 9C (49F)

WEDNESDAY: partly to mostly sunny.
high: 9C (48F)

THURSDAY: partly sunny skies... rather cool.
high: 8C (47F)
