unseasonable warmth... (pm.2.feb.11)

the day is ending as it began, with lots of sunshine.  in between, we had a few hours of high clouds which were a bit more dense than i was expecting.  despite those clouds, today was the warmest day in mcleod ganj in the past several weeks.  i had a high temp of 61F (16C) which, in the upper part of town, is actually more representative of late february.

warmer than normal temps will continue for the rest of the week... but along with that, we'll be seeing the atmosphere destabilize, which will lead to increasing cloudiness and gradually better and better chances of some rain shower action.  in fact, it looks like we are going to get into an unsettled pattern that will last into early next week.  at this point, it looks like it will be too warm for snow in mcleod ganj, but higher elevations, and places to our north are likely to see accumulating snows off and on from friday until about tuesday...
