unwanted creativity... (pm.20.oct.13)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 57.0F (13.9C)
High temp: 64.6F (18.1C)
Rainfall: 0.02" (less than 1mm)

There are a lot of low clouds hanging around after sunset this evening, with the humidity up around 70%.  Our brilliant sunshine this morning began to give way to developing clouds over the mountains by 11:00am, which led to some isolated brief light sprinkles/showers and thunder during the early afternoon.  The sun tried to make a reappearance during the late afternoon, but then more clouds developed as the evening set in.  All in all, not the nicest day we've seen during the past week.

The subtleties of cloud/shower development along the front slopes of the Dhauladhars are maddening to keep up with, as all of the dynamics responsible are happening on a micro-scale, pretty much undetected by the resolution of the computer model data.  Rainfall amounts were insignificant today, as far as I am aware, but still, it's no fun to get a spoiler in the midst of a Sunday afternoon.

We've got a bit of a fidgety upper-level pattern going on across north India right now, as a pocket of colder air continues to slowly shift from Jammu & Kashmir into western Tibet.  As the upper-levels warm up again during the next couple of days, we will see more creative alternations between sun and clouds and isolated showers.  Temperatures today were a bit cooler, thanks to more cloudiness, but remain very close to normal for the latter third of October, actually.
