trending cooler... (am.26.jan.15)>

The sky is mostly clear here at my location/elevation in the upper part of town, but there is widespread fog and low clouds visible in the valleys down below on this REPUBLIC DAY morning.  That's due to a shallow layer of cold air which has been spilling in from the north since last evening.  I've recorded a low temp of 37.6F (3.1C), and there has been no precipitation overnight.

There's nothing even remotely resembling an organized storm system on the weather charts -- not only in the near term, but all the way into the first several days of February as well.  A rapid upper-level flow will transport a few weak disturbances across northern India, but with very little moisture available, nothing more than some isolated rain and/or snow showers will occur -- and that mainly in the higher mountain ares.

As I've been saying for a few days, we will have to deal with this shot of cooler temperatures for much of this week.  There will be alternating periods of clouds and sun, but when we DO get that sunshine, it will still feel quite nice, considering it is the middle of the winter season...
