Wednesday's stats:

Low temp: 51.6F (10.9C)
High temp: 61.0F (16.1C)
Rainfall: none

Today has turned out to be another day of nearly 100% sunny skies -- one of several we've been able to relish in the past week and a half.  I recorded a high temp above 60F for the fourth day in a row, though it did start to cool off during the afternoon.

We've just started to come under the influence of a glancing blow of slightly cooler air during the last few hours, thanks to a very fast-moving upper-level disturbance which is dropping into Jammu & Kashmir from the northwest this evening.  This system contains hardly any moisture at all, so we may not even see much cloudiness as it swings off to our northeast by tomorrow evening.  At any rate, temperatures are expected to be a few degrees cooler between tonight and Friday morning -- but still not particularly cold at all for this time of year.

By Friday, a new ridge of high pressure will form over northern India, allowing us to begin a fresh warm-up over the weekend.  At the same time, however, there will be a weak disturbance riding eastward on the jet stream winds, which may give us an increase in clouds.  Evidence of any kind of significant storm system has withered away with the latest runs of computer model data, so all in all, it looks like it will remain quiet and relatively mild as we head toward the end of the month.
