starting with sun... (am.15.apr.13)>

It's a bit hazy, otherwise skies are totally clear early this Monday morning.  The humidity is hovering right around 45%, and I've recorded an overnight low temp of 57.0F (13.9C).  There has been no precipitation since the trace amounts late yesterday afternoon.

A weak high pressure ridge is set up across northern India this morning, and should keep things clear, calm and stable until perhaps mid-afternoon, when the mountain instability could start percolating again.  We're still waiting for a more substantial shot at some thunderstorm activity late tomorrow (Tue) into Wednesday, as an upper-level disturbance dropping in from the northwest delivers a batch of colder air in the higher layers of the atmosphere.  Right now the best window of opportunity for a period or two of rough weather appears to be between early tomorrow evening and late Wednesday afternoon.  There's not a whole lot of moisture to work with, but since we're well below normal for April rainfall, it would be good to get something going.

Even drier air should sweep in by Thursday, with generally stable conditions lasting into at least the early part of the weekend.  As far as temperatures are concerned, we could be on a minor roller-coaster ride this week, depending on whether or not the thunderstorms materialize -- but all in all temps should balance out fairly close to normal for the season.
