our busy weekend... (pm.02.oct.15)>

Friday's stats:

Low temp: 62.4F (16.9C)
High temp: 74.1F (23.4C)
Rainfall: none

Lingering evening clouds along the mountains have just now dissipated, leaving us with clear skies shortly after sunset.  Full sunshine this morning into the early afternoon gave way to some mountain cloud development again -- though it wasn't very impressive until after 4:00pm.  At that time, we suddenly had a rapid increase in low cloudiness and a bit of fog, but it didn't last more than an hour or so.  Humidity was just 30% this morning, but jumped up to 65% during the late afternoon with that cloud development.

The India vs South Africa cricket match at the HPCA stadium in Dharamsala will be starting shortly, with many millions of national and international TV viewers tuned in.  Our weather has cooperated very nicely with the huge influx of tourists this weekend for the match, and for the Gandhi Jayanti national holiday.

There is a weak upper-level disturbance dropping in from the northwest, however, which could bring us a wrinkle or two in the forecast scenario, especially on Sunday.  A pool of cooler air aloft and a bit of rotation in the upper atmosphere will try desperately to tap into what little moisture is available to give us perhaps a greater percentage of cloudiness tomorrow (Sat) afternoon into Sunday, along with at least a slight chance of some isolated shower/thunder action.  At this moment it doesn't look like a very big deal, but of course we'll keep an eye out.

Pleasant and generally dry October weather is expected for most of next week...
