fantastically stable... (pm.26.nov.13)>

Tuesday's stats:

Low temp: 51.1F (10.6C)
High temp: 61.0F (16.1C)
Rainfall: none

Our sky is utterly and totally and absolutely clear just after sunset this evening, at the end of day which featured wall-to-wall sunshine.  I saw a couple of very tiny cumulus fragments struggling to develop over the mountain peaks during the mid-afternoon, but they didn't last very long.  Temperatures today were again very pleasant for the end of November, as humidity held mainly in the 35-50% range.

During most of the year, the weather in McLeod Ganj is fickle, changeable, erratic and sometimes bordering on unpredictable.  But -- during the past couple of weeks or more, we've been experiencing the opposite.  We've come under the influence of a very quiet and dry weather pattern throughout all layers of the atmosphere which is providing us with the most calm and serene stretch of weather conditions that we ever get around here.  The air mass is absolutely stable, there is hardly any moisture anywhere to be found, and only very minor upper-level disturbances have been coming anywhere near northern India recently.

No major jolts or shake-ups are appearing on the charts during the coming week to ten days or so (at least), which means sunshine punctuated by a few high clouds at times, relatively low humidity, and seasonable to slightly above average temperatures will all remain in the forecast.  We get to enjoy an extended 'breather' before the inevitable next batch of stormy weather decides to threaten...
