the magnificence... (pm.05.oct.15)>

Monday's stats:

Low temp: 62.4F (16.9C)
High temp: 74.3F (23.5C)
Rainfall:  none

In line with the recent routine, there are just a few cloud traces along the mountains during the half hour after sunset this evening.  We had a sunny morning, followed by a partly cloudy afternoon -- with perhaps an isoated shower in the middle of the afternoon up along the Dhauladhars.  Humidity at my location on Tushita Road just below the mountaineering center averaged around 40% today... AND, we have now had ten days in a row without measurable rainfall.  Imagine that.

The month of October so far has been nothing short of superb, with lots of sunshine, no rain, comfortable humidity levels, and temperatures running significantly warmer than normal.  In fact, we've been consistently 2ºC/3-4ºF above normal for both high and low temps since about the 29th of September.  The upper-level pattern continues to look much like it did a month ago, though the tropical moisture has been swept away.  Good combination for us.

There are no significant changes on the horizon as we head through this week and coming weekend, and that means we should continue to enjoy lots of sunshine on a daily basis, generally low humidity, and pleasantly warm temperatures.  It feels much more like a repeat of early summer as opposed to the early stages of autumn.
