tuesday evening (18jan)>

a beautiful evening in progress, with the nearly full moon now rising over the dhauladhars.  we had a variety of weather today... nice sunshine throughout the morning and even into the early afternoon, with temps rising to around 50F (10C) in upper mcleod ganj.  but the anticipated snow showers did develop around 3pm, and we had an erie 45 minutes of dark clouds, light snow and gusty winds.

that pool of very cold air aloft associated with the upper level disturbance is departing to the east quickly this evening, and that will leave us with generally quiet weather for the next 36 to 48 hours.  after that, another weak ripple aloft will drift through, and could stir things up enough for another round of brief and relatively light rain and snow showers.

despite all that... there are no real significant storms or weather dramas in sight for the next 5-6 days at least...
