active/unsettled pattern... (am.07.mar.15)>

With a low temp of 45.0F (7.2C), this is the mildest morning of the month thus far.  We have partly cloudy skies at sunrise, and there has been no rainfall overnight.

High clouds are already pushing into north India from the west, in advance of the next storm system that is winding up over eastern Iran and Afghanistan.  This system doesn't look to be quite as intense as the one that delivered 4" of rain during the early part of this week, but it will be capable of triggering the development of some rather widespread rain and thunderstorm activity -- perhaps starting by late this afternoon or evening.  The wet weather will then continue on and off through at least mid-day Monday.  Although temperatures in advance of this system have warmed up a bit, colder air will again surge in sometime Sunday, keeping us well below normal for early March.

The brighter news is that we should see a fairly rapid and dramatic turn to drier and milder weather by Tuesday (Uprising Day) -- and if the clouds hold off, we may top 60F/16C on both Tuesday and Wednesday.  But the overall weather pattern will remain active and progressive, which means there will be yet another batch of disturbed weather moving in by late in the week, increasing rain chances once again.
