all-around comfort... (pm.04.oct.15)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 61.3F (16.3C)
High temp: 74.1F (23.4C)
Rainfall: none

There are just a few lingering clouds in the vicinity of the mountains shortly after sunset this evening.  We've had a fantastic day, with full sunshine this morning yielding to a considerable amount of cumulus cloud development in the immediate vicinity of the Dhauladhars during the afternoon.  There was even some isolated shower/thunder activity to our north and northeast, but none of that affected us at all here in McLeod.  Humidity was actually back down into the 40-50% range today.

Some weak upper-level circulations have been rippling across north India since late yesterday, accompanied by a few little pockets of cooler air aloft.  That's been responsible for some isolated shower/thundershower action just barely north of us -- from western Kashmir into northcentral Himachal Pradesh -- but with a relatively dry air mass, it seems that rainfall amounts have been very light.

The week ahead is looking very quiet for us, with a generally light west-northwesterly flow aloft, and very little moisture in the air mass across most of north India.  Actually, it's just about what we might expect this time of year, apart from the fact that our temperatures will continue to run a couple of degrees (ÂșC) above normal for early October.  Extended range computer models (at least as of right now) don't show very much of consequence all the way through the 17th-18th of the month.
