transitions... (am.4.feb.11)>

we've got to be in record territory with these temperatures... i have a minimum of only 55F (12.8C) up here at my place this morning, which is the warmest february min temp i can remember.  we'll have another day...maybe two... of this super-mild weather, but then things are going to change.

the atmosphere is gathering its resources to produce a pretty strong late winter storm during the next few days.  rain and snow will first be concentrated to our north and west, across northern pakistan into kashmir, but as this system moves eastward over the weekend, we will start to get in on the action.  scattered light showers are possible today, but rainfall coverage and intensity will increase into sunday and monday, with a dramatic drop in temperatures expected.  be advised that heavy snow is likely to fall in the mountains, mainly above 2000m (6500ft), especially from sunday through tuesday.  some of that snow could make it down to mcleod ganj... but at this point, it looks like mostly rain for us.  stay tuned as it all comes together over the next couple of days...

FRIDAY: partly to mostly cloudy skies, with a chance of a few sprinkles or light showers developing, mainly during the afternoon.  another very mild day.
