more good stuff... (am.06.mar.13)>

We have clear skies and 47% humidity just before sunrise this morning  My overnight low here in the upper part of town has been 54.3F (12.4C) -- after a high yesterday afternoon of 68.2F (20.1C) which was the warmest of the year thus far.

Fantastic early springtime weather should continue for the next few days, as a high pressure ridge builds back into northern India.  There was a bit of instability yesterday, thanks to a pocket of colder air in the upper-atmosphere that stirred up a couple of random showers in the higher mountains from Kashmir into Himachal.  We may again see some afternoon cloud development over the mountains today, but by and large it should be more stable all the way through Friday, giving us plenty of sunshine.  Temperatures will remain above normal for this stage of March, with the magical 70F (21.1C) still a good possibility by the end of the week.

A disturbance scheduled to move across the western Himalayan region over the weekend is still looking less than impressive.  It will be weakening as it approaches us, with most of the energy expected to pass to our north.  At any rate, there is a little better chance of a couple of showers or thundershowers from late Saturday into Sunday, along with a slight drop in temperatures.
