Monday's stats:

Low temp: 51.6F (10.9C)
High temp: 60.4F (15.8C)
Rainfall: none

Clear skies prevail just after sunset on this Monday evening.  It has been a sunny day, with only a couple of short-lived cumulus clouds over the mountain peaks during the mid-afternoon, and very little if any high cloudiness.  Temperatures turned out to be a bit cooler than yesterday, but it was still above 60F at my location in the upper part of town, which is slightly above normal for the season.

We are firmly in the grip of a totally uneventful weather pattern here across the western Himalayan region and northwest India, with no significant changes expected during the coming week or more.  There will be occasional weak disturbances in the upper-level jet stream winds that could generate a period or two of mainly high clouds here and there, but moisture is so severely limited that rain chances will remain very close to zero.  This is definitely the driest and sunniest period of weather we've found ourselves in in many months, and it's certainly nice to have it.

There should be only minor temperature variations from day to day, as we remain on the high side of average for the final days of November.  As we've all figured out by now, it is plenty warm in the direct sun, but seasonably cool in the shade.  Without a significant storm system moving through, that should continue to be the case.
