scattered showers... (am.10.apr.13)>

Skies are cloudy at sunrise this morning, after a period of thunder and light rain showers which began around 3:45am and ended here at my location just after 6am.  I've recorded 0.12" (3mm) of rain, along with a cooler low temperature of 51.6F (10.9C) which has occurred in just the past half hour.

This rainfall is the first measurable of April.  Although April is the second driest month of the year, it still averages 1.9" (4.9cm) -- so this morning's showers have barely made a dent in that. 

A rapidly weakening upper-level disturbance is located over central Pakistan this morning, and is expected to be near the southwestern Kashmir border by late tonight.  This set-up will keep us eligible for more scattered shower and/or thundershower activity today into tonight as bands of energy and moisture swirl around the center of that disturbance.  Sunshine doesn't look very promising at the moment, but we could see some significant breaks in the clouds from time to time as the day progresses.

This system will be pretty much out of the picture by tomorrow (Thu), with rapid warming expected from the surface into the upper-levels of the atmosphere once again.  It won't take long for temperatures to rebound nicely.  We'll have to be on the lookout for PM instability-induced thundershowers over the mountains over the weekend, otherwise things are looking very nice and comfortable in the days ahead...
