warmest of the month... (pm.24.nov.13)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 53.8F (12.1C)
High temp: 63.5F (17.5C)
Rainfall: none

Today's temperatures -- both high and low -- were the warmest of November, and about 5F above normal for this time of year.  In fact, it felt a lot more like the tail-end of October.  Most of the high cloudiness occurred during the morning hours, but we've had another wave moving in from the west this evening.  Otherwise, the sun did a good job maintaining control for most of the day.

The general weather pattern won't be changing much over the course of the next several days.  A weakening high pressure ridge will remain over northwest India, while a weakening low pressure trough hangs to our west over Afghanistan into western Pakistan.  This is the time of year when a benign set-up like this is pretty much the norm -- offering very little chance of rain or stormy weather at all.

Occasional high clouds in the midst of sunshine, temperatures running at least a couple of degrees above normal for this time of year, and low humidity will be the factors in play as November comes to a close.  This is definitely the longest period of inactive weather we've had around here in many months...
