peaceful for now... (pm.25.mar.13)>

Monday's stats:

Early morning low temp: 48.0F (8.9C)
Afternoon high temp: 64.2F (17.9C)
Rainfall: none

The clouds which developed over the mountains this afternoon are rapidly dissipating as of 6pm, leaving us with mostly clear skies as sunset approaches.  It has been a very nice Monday, with lots of sunshine and temperatures about 9F/5C warmer than we had yesterday.

It's still several degrees cooler than normal for the final week of March, but we should continue with a gradual warm-up into at least the middle of the week.  Other than some mountain instability during the afternoons which will generate some cloudiness and perhaps a stray shower, it's looking good for Holi festivities.

A new upper-level disturbance will be easing into northwest India by Thursday, however, and will lead to an increase in rain chances for the following few days.  We're not looking at a well-organized storm system, just a broad area of weak low pressure aloft which will keep things rather unstable and unsettled into at least the first part of the weekend.  Rainfall amounts shouldn't be anything like we just got hit with on Sunday.
