Monday's stats:

Early morning low temp: 60.6F (15.9C)
Afternoon high temp: 75.7F (24.3C)
Rainfall: none

Skies are mostly cloudy across the area on this Monday evening.  We've had a nearly equal split between clouds and sun today, with no rain at all for the third day in a row.  Despite the expectation of some scattered thundershowers today, we've seen nothing thus far, with humidity remaining quite low.

Upper-level low pressure continues to spin over northern Afghanistan, but up til now, the major instability associated with this system has yet to begin affecting us here in Himachal.  Also, there's very little low-level moisture present at the moment.  Data suggests that we'll have a good chance of a round or two of thunderstorms during the coming 48 hours or so, so we'll just have to keep an eye on how things develop, and be prepared for a turn for the worse.  It still looks like drier and more stable air will move in quickly during Thursday, cutting off the rain chances except for perhaps in the higher mountains -- and setting the stage for a period of dry, pleasantly warm and generally sunny weather for the coming weekend.

If we do get a significant round of showers/thunderstorms we'll have a rather dramatic but short-lived drop in temperatures -- but all indications are that we'll be enjoying a stretch of seasonably warm temps as soon as this system clears out of here.
