very easy to take... (pm.21.oct.15)>

Wednesday's stats:

Low temp: 58.1F (14.5C)
High temp: 69.8F (21.0C)
Rainfall: none

We've got another beautiful evening going on, with mostly clear skies at dusk, and temperatures continuing to run in a very comfortable range for this time of year.  The day has been mostly sunny, apart from the obligatory build-up of cumulus clouds over the Dhauladhars this afternoon.  Humidity at my location in the upper part of town was steady in the 40-45% range.

The way things are looking right now, we should have another two or three days of this super-fine late October weather -- with plenty of sunshine, low humidity, and seasonably pleasant temperatures.  However, by Saturday evening, some concerns start to enter the picture.  Computer models are projecting a visitation by a rather strong upper-level storm system by the second half of the weekend into early next week.  This time of year it's hard to get a whole lot of moisture gathered together, but the dynamics of this disturbance look impressive at this point, and the models are all showing a fairly widespread outbreak of showers and thunderstorms from northern Pakistan into northern India by Saturday night or Sunday -- lasting through Monday night and possibly into Tuesday.  It's out of the ordinary to get hit with an extended period of moderate to locally heavy rainfall during the final days of October, but we could be under the gun for something like that.  Keep abreast.

Temperatures will be turning much cooler with the advent of this system, with another blast of drier autumn air flowing into our area in its wake.
