a minor disturbance... (am.04.mar.13)>

A batch of high clouds is moving across the area early this morning, which should limit our sunshine for at least part of the day.  My overnight low temp has been 54.3F (12.4C), with early AM humidity at 40%.

The weak upper-level disturbance we've been watching the last couple of days is arriving now.  It's going to be pretty much a non-event -- apart from occasional high cloudiness which may hold temps just slightly below yesterday's.  There's also a very slight chance of a random light shower somewhere in the area today or tonight, but if it happens, it will barely wet the rain gauge.  By tomorrow (Tues), this weak system will be moving east of us and a strong ridge of high pressure will build back across northern India for the remainder of the week.

Normal high temps for this week are around 64-65F (18C), but we should remain a bit warmer than that... and perhaps significantly warmer than that by Friday, when we could have a shot at our first 70F of the new year.
