october moisture... (pm.01.oct.14)>

Wednesday's stats:

Low temp: 59.5F (15.3C)
High temp: 65.1F (18.4C)
Rainfall: 0.43" (1.1cm)

It's partly cloudy and hazy as darkness settles in this evening.  We had another period of moderate rain showers today -- which got started shortly after 11:30am, and continued until around 1:00pm.  Both before and after that rainy episode, we had a bit of sunshine.

For the second year in a row, we're carrying significant leftovers of the monsoon season into the month of October.  As long as so much cloudiness and fog, along with scattered showers and thundershowers continue to develop along the hills and mountain slopes, it's questionable as to whether or not the India Met Department will consider giving us the "ALL CLEAR" for Monsoon 2014.  You can continue to follow that story on the tab above.

It's been looking like we may have a bit of a trend toward drier conditions and lower average humidity as we move into the latter part of this week -- then into the weekend and early next week as well.  But I'm sorry to say this still doesn't appear to be a long-term shift to sunny and dry weather.  Not at all.
