a dip in temps... (pm.01.dec.13)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 52.5F (11.4C)
High temp: 59.6F (15.3C)
Rainfall: none

There's a bit of high cloudiness showing up on the western horizon at sunset this evening, and we had some scattered high clouds early this morning, otherwise we've had lots of sunshine once again across our area today.  It started off rather mild this morning, with my high temp occurring around 11:00am -- then some slightly cooler air started filtering in, keeping it below 60F on this first day of December.

An upper-level disturbance is making its way into extreme northwestern Pakistan this evening, and will be moving across the western Himalayas during the next couple of days.  Significantly cooler air will be dropping southeastward as this system passes, but there remains a serious lack of moisture available -- and that means we probably won't see any precipitation (either rain or mountain snow).  Cooling temperatures and occasional high clouds will be the main effects for us, it appears.

We may see a minor and brief rise in temps during the mid-week period, before another weak disturbances arrives with yet another shot of cooler air on Friday into Saturday.  All in all, uneventful -- which is pretty normal for this time of year.
