signs of summer... (am.03.may.13)>

Apart from some light haze, it is absolutely clear and sunny early this Friday morning.  The humidity reading is 37%, and I've recorded an overnight low temp of 60.6F (15.9C) here on Tushita Road in the upper part of town.

A fine early summer type of weather pattern is now developing across northern India, and looks like it will hold on for several days at least.  Gradual warming will be occurring not only at the surface, but in the mid- and upper-levels of the atmosphere as well.  There could still be a period of instability during the afternoon hours as the very warm air at the surface rises into comparatively colder air aloft along/over the mountains, but with this dry air mass, it's going to be hard to get any measurable rainfall going -- as we've already seen during the past week.  There could be a little more hefty upper-level disturbance passing by late Sunday into Monday, but even then, I think our rain chances will remain small.

We seem to be poised on the verge of breaking into the 80F+ range for the first time this season during the coming few days, with genuinely HOT weather conditions expected just downhill from us.  Welcome to summer!!
