mid-winter bliss... (pm.18.jan.15)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 42.6F (5.9C)
High temp: 51.2F (10.7C)
Precipitation: none

Our gorgeous January weather continues on.  It was almost 100% sunny today, with no wind to speak of, and temperatures running a few degrees above normal for the middle of the winter season.

It looks like there are some changes on the horizon though, as an upper-level storm system currently over southern Iraq shifts gradually eastward to central Pakistan by Thursday morning.  Moisture will be drawn northward as it approaches, with cooler and cooler air showing up in the middle and upper levels of the atmosphere.  That combination should lead to significant development of precipitation across northern India as early as Wednesday morning -- with the risk of wet weather lasting into at least the first part of the weekend.

The best chance of rain and snow in our immediate area will come between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday night... but of course we'll have to keep an eye on developments during the next couple of days.  One thing's for sure -- it's going to be much less pleasant around here by the latter part of this week.
