some moisture on the way... (pm.07.feb.15)>

Saturday's stats:

Low temp: 41.0F (5.0C)
High temp: 52.1F (11.2C)
Precipitation: none

It is partly cloudy just after sunset this Saturday evening -- with a solid bank of mid- and high clouds visible off to the west.  We ended up with plenty of sunshine today, though there were some patchy mainly high clouds drifting through from time to time.  Temperatures were very close to normal for this stage of February.

There is still a rather extensive area of weak low pressure in the upper atmosphere hovering just to our west, with a couple of weak circulation centers embedded in it.  Also, a bit of moisture is being drawn into the flow from the Arabian Sea, which will be forced up against the outer Himalayan ranges during the next 24 hours or so.  As we've been talking about for days -- this system is only a small fraction as strong/dynamic as the one we dealt with back on Monday/Tuesday, so any precipitation amounts around here shouldn't be all that impressive.  It still looks like there could be up to 1cm (0.40") sometime between late tonight and Sunday evening.  The mountains above us could pick up an additional 4-6" of snow.

Starting on Monday, things are looking very uneventful, with generally quiet weather expected throughout next week.  Something to look forward to would be a notable warming trend by the latter part of the week which could bring in a small taste of spring...
