back to calm... (pm.23.dec.13)>

Monday's stats:

Low temp: 39.6F (4.2C)
High temp: 50.2F (10.1C)
24 hour rainfall: 0.09" (2mm)

Temperatures rebounded nicely today, thanks to lots of sunshine -- allowing any traces of snow left anywhere below about 8000ft (2400m) to melt quickly.  There were some very early morning clouds, and an afternoon build-up of cumulus clouds over the mountains, otherwise the sun was firmly in control.

A strong jet stream blasting across northern India in the upper-levels of the atmosphere will keep a progression of weak disturbances moving through -- but the general condition of the air mass is going to be very dry (and getting drier and drier), so it's unlikely that we'll be seeing any rain and/or snowfall during the next several days.

At the moment it certainly seems that Christmas and the final week of December (and 2013) will be uneventful...
