spring's evolution... (pm.18.mar.13)>

There are no organized storm systems anywhere near our part of the world, but the upper-level pattern remains a bit disturbed.  That's going to keep occasional cloudiness and even the risk of some mainly afternoon mountain shower development in the forecast this week.

All in all, it looks like a fairly normal late March weather pattern as we approach the vernal equinox -- or the "official" first day of spring here in the northern hemisphere.

A surge of warmer air is expected to bubble northward during the latter part of the week, which could deliver the warmest temperatures of the season on Friday and Saturday.  Afterwards, a stronger upper-level disturbance moving in during the latter half of the weekend will bring us a better (though brief) shot at more widespread showers and thundershowers.

I'm planning to be back home in McLeod Ganj on Friday, and am looking forward to resuming detailed coverage of weather forecasts and stats!
