the happiness continues... (am.25.mar.15)>

It's another very mild morning for this time of the year -- my current temp is 63.0F (17.2C), but I recorded an overnight low of 59.2F (15.1C) which occurred during some off and on brief light rain showers between about 4:00 and 5:30am.  Those showers didn't register a measurement in the rain gauge.  There are only a few leftover clouds at sunrise.

The weak upper-level disturbance we've been tracking is now moving across northern India, and was successful in stirring up those very light rain showers just a couple of hours ago.  There may be another round of isolated/random light rain showers at some point today, otherwise we'll see another day of mixed clouds and sunshine... with temperatures continuing to run well above normal for late March.  The dominant weather feature will still be that massive ridge of high pressure parked just to our south as we finish off this week, and it will be providing us with more of our recent sun/occasional cloud combination -- with only a small chance of a random shower or thundershower popping up during the PM hours.

There are going to be some major changes in the scenario, but that probably won't begin to occur until late Saturday night or Sunday.  By then, the first in a series of more significant storm systems will move into the western Himalayan region, increasing the potential for periods of rain and thunderstorms, while getting rid of these unseasonably warm temperatures.  It is still looking like most of next week will be much stormier and significantly cooler than what we've gotten used to during the past week or so.
