sunday morning (30jan)>

i guess the forecast should have included a hurricane... winds have been kicking up off and on since around 11pm, and were really fierce just after 7am this morning.  precipitation has been sparse here in mcleod ganj... with just some occasional rain showers during the wee hours of the morning (along with a flash or two of lightning around 3am).  significant snow has fallen up on the mountains... but it appears to be above naddi and upper dharamkot.  will wait to get some reports from our friends up there.  from what i can see, several inches of new snow has fallen from near magic cafe, on up to triund.

the satellite pics this morning indicate the center of the storm system over southern kashmir, moving rather quickly to the northeast.  we may yet pick up some light rain and snow showers today, but i think our best chance of precip has passed us by to the north.  winds should gradually diminish, with even a chance of some sunshine peeking through later today.

expect generally calm and quiet weather for the first half of the new week... along with a decent warming trend.  by thursday we'll begin to see evidence of the next storm system which will affect our area next weekend...
