system on approach... (am.23.mar.13)>

Skies are mostly cloudy early on this Saturday morning, with a humidity reading of 51%.  My overnight low temperature here on Tushita Road below the Mountaineering Center has been 56.3F (13.5C).

Not the most fantastic weekend shaping up for us.  Satellite pics show quite a lot of mid- and high-level cloudiness across much of Pakistan and northern India, ahead of a rather deep upper-level low-pressure system now swirling around over central Afghanistan.  Showers and thundershowers will break out over Pakistan later today, with the main energy expected to move across our area between late tonight and Sunday night.  There could be some thundershower development here this afternoon, but I think tomorrow is going to be the wetter day of the weekend.  Computer models are still showing the potential for around 3cm (1.2") of rain.

Clouds will hold temps down, but if we do manage a sunny break or two today, it will be quite pleasant.  Sunday should be significantly cooler, if the rain does indeed materialize.

Unsettled conditions next week will keep us from getting any 100% sunny days, and will also prevent any really major warm-up from occurring.
