october beauty... (pm.01.oct.15)>

Thursday's stats:

Low temp: 63.1F (17.3C)
High temp: 75.3F (24.1C)
Rainfall: none

The sun has recently set, and we have totally clear skies across the area again this evening.  Today has been the fifth day in a row without a drop of rain, and a fitting start to the month of October.  Our sunshine was plentify yet again, with only a moderate build-up of cumulus clouds over the immediate Dhauladhar range for a few hours during the mid- to late afternoon hours.  I recorded a humidity reading as low as 27% during the morning -- as temperatures continue to run a bit above average/normal.

We are going into a very busy holiday weekend here in the Dharamsala/McLeod Ganj area.  Of course tomorrow (Fri) is Gandhi Jayanti, a.k.a. the celebration of Gandhi's birthday.  Also, we've got an international cricket match scheduled for Friday evening at 7:00pm at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala, with India taking on South Africa in a T20 match.  Literally tens of millions of eyes will be on our little corner of the world during that nationally and internationally televised match tomorrow evening.

The way things stand, it seems that there will be a lot to show off to all those millions of TV viewers, as our weather is expected to remain seasonably beautiful.  We should continue to see lots of sunshine, with just a few hours of mountain cloud development during the afternoon hours that should quickly dissipate as the sun goes down.  Humidity will remain low, as temperatures stay in the comfort zone.  There are no major changes foreseen during the next week or so...
