very few concerns... (pm.12.apr.15)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 58.1F (14.5C)
High temp: 72.5F (22.5C)
Rainfall: none

Our sky is partly cloudy this evening as sunset approaches, as it has been pretty much all day long.  There are a couple of isolated thundershowers lurking just to our northwest, but they should be losing their power as the sun goes down.  Today's high temp was slightly cooler than yesterday's but still squarely in the middle of the comfort zone.

The center of an upper-level low presssure circulation is almost right on top of Delhi at the moment, and though it's very weak, it is providing enough instability to trigger some isolated to widely scattered showers and thundershowers across about the northwest half of India.  At the same time, however, temperatures in the mid- and upper-levels of the atmosphere continue to warm, so that instability is only marginal at best.  The nose of a new ridge of high pressure will start to push in from the west tomorrow, and that should erase our slight risk of thundershowers for the most part, at least for a couple of days.

Computer models are still hinting at an unseasonable advance of deeper moisture from the southeast on Wednesday into Thursday, which will keep us from being able to completely forget about the chance of some rain this coming week.  Any shower/thundershower action should be widely scattered at best, and probably confined to the afternoon and evening hours -- but keep that risk in mind nonetheless.  Temperatures will fluctuate slightly over the course of the coming week, but should remain within a couple of degrees of normal/average for mid-April.  And that's good news...
