turning colder again... (pm.16.dec.13)>

Pretty phenomenal weather conditions have been parked over northwest India the last few days, as an unusually strong high pressure ridge holds sway.  Temperatures have bounced back nicely after a period of unseasonably cold weather during much of last week, while sunshine has been easy to come by.

Unfortunately, the upper-level flow continues to be very progressive and changeable, and that's going to allow the next batch of much colder air to sweep into the area as this week unfolds.  At this point, there remains a dramatic lack of moisture available here in our part of the world, so despite the air mass change, precipitation will be unlikely.  Just be mentally prepared for the lowest temps of the season by the latter part of the week -- which will most likely stay below 10C (50F) for daytime highs.

If all goes according to plan, I'll be back in McLeod this weekend.  Not looking forward to the bone-chilling bus ride from Delhi :-(
