same story... (am.03.oct.13)>

It is partly cloudy at sunrise this morning, and there has been a little bit of thunder and a few sprinkles of rain during the past hour or so.  I've recorded just a trace of rain since last report... so the 24 hour total remains 1.70" (4.3cm), courtesy of the torrential downpour last evening.  The temperature is near 60F (15.5C) and humidity is high, at 88%, to start the day.

The moisture which lingers not only here in our neighborhood, but across almost all of northern India is not going anywhere during the coming several days.  I've been skeptical of a few runs of the computer model data which have been pulling the bulk of the moisture off to the southeast, and I guess that's been the right attitude, because we're experiencing absolutely no improvement in our general weather scenario.  The only bright spot on the weather charts is the weakening of a persistent low pressure circulation which has been wobbling back and forth between central and west-central India during the past week, and has contributed to our own weather woes.

It has been nice to get some occasional nice sunny periods on most days, but they only seem to serve to tempt us to think that we might be on the brink of some kind of long-term improvement.  Not the case.  Expect the development/influx of clouds and fog on each and every day, along with the potential to get hit with a sudden shower or thundershower at any time as well.  One more downpour like the one last evening, and we'll already be well beyond the normal October rainfall total, and the month has barely begun!
