some nice days... (pm.15.oct.15)>

Thursday's stats:

Low temp: 57.0F (13.9C)
High temp: 67.8F (19.9C)
Rainfall: none

The last of this afternoon's mountain clouds are dissipating now, leaving us with mostly clear skies as darkness settles in.  It's been a very nice mid-October day, with nearly full sunshine this morning, followed by that moderate build-up of cumulus clouds along the Dhauladhars during the PM hours.  Our temperatures rebounded, as expected.

Apart from the risk of some kind of very isolated afternoon shower/thunder development somewhere along the mountain slopes, the next three days are looking very good.  We should have a predominance of sunshine, along with temps in a very pleasant range for this time of year.  There is enough latent moisture in the air to fuel PM cloud development -- but we deal with that under most circumstances here along the front slopes of the Dhauladhar range.

A bit of a circulation/disturbance in the upper-atmosphere will approach from the west-northwest by Sunday evening, accompanied by some significant cooling in the upper-levels as well.  This will set the stage for our next risk of some shower and thundershower development, with the best chance coming on Monday into Tuesday.  Extended range data has been flipping and flopping all over the place as far as the last ten days of the month are concerned... so we'll have to stay alert.
