the latest...

**Our six-day rainfall total, since last Saturday, is 10.55" (26.8cm). That's one heck of a big amount of rain for so early in our evolving monsoon season...

looking quiet... (pm.27.oct.15)>

Tuesday's stats:

Low temp: 53.4F (11.9C)
High temp: 64.0F (17.8C)
Rainfall: none

It is partly cloudy at dusk this evening, here at the end of a relatively nice late October day.  We've had clouds in the vicinity of the mountains all day -- even since the early morning hours -- but sunshine has turned out to be the dominant feature here in town.  Humidity has averaged close to 45%, and temperatures have been slightly warmer than expected.

An upper-level low pressure circulation is spinning over northern Pakistan, and will drift south-southeastward into extreme northern Rajasthan by this time tomorrow.  Despite the energy aloft and an associated pool of very cold air up there above 15,000ft or so, pretty much all of the significant moisture has been swept out of here and well off to the southeast.  As I mentioned last evening, that means that what's left of this system is totally out of sync, and unable to trigger anything other than the most isolated shower action across Himalayan north India.  There's a better chance of some significant rainfall across central and northcentral India during the next three days or so as this upper-level system scoots off to the east.

For us, things are looking quiet and dry and rather pleasant as we finish off the month.  Low humidity, seasonably comfortable temperatures and sunny to partly cloudy skies should be in order all the way through the coming weekend.
