drying trend to continue... (pm.07.sep.15)>

Monday's stats:

Low temp: 59.4F (15.2C)
High temp: 71.0F (21.7C)
Rainfall: 0.17" (4mm)

100% sunshine early this morning again gave way to rapid cloud development before noon, with partly to mostly cloudy skies through the mid-afternoon hours.  There were a couple of brief periods of showers and thunder between roughly 2:00 and 3:30pm, but at least at my location here on Tushita Road below the mountaineering center, amounts were relatively light.  The sun returned during the late afternoon and evening.

It's going to be a very interesting week -- as the data continues to point toward a significant drying trend between tomorrow (Tue) and the weekend.  The average moisture content of our air mass will continue to decrease, almost on a daily basis, but how that actually plays out here along the slopes of the Dhauladhars remains in question.  Let's stay prepared for cloud development at some point by the mid-day hours, along with the risk of some random thundershowers around the area during the afternoons.  Our temperatures show signs of warming up day by day.
