barely measurable... (pm.13.nov.15)>

Friday's stats:

Low temp: 54.3F (12.4C)
High temp: 63.6F (17.6C)
Rainfall: 0.03" (1mm)

We'll call it partly cloudy as night falls, with a tiny sliver of a crescent moon in the southwestern sky.  Today has been a fairly pleasant one, after this morning's thick clouds and scattered very light rain showers (mainly between 8:00 and 9:30am) gave way to partly sunny skies.  You can see from the stats above that our rainfall measurement was a paltry one -- barely enough to register at all, in fact.  If you slept late, you missed it entirely.

There's still a trough of low pressure in the upper atmosphere lingering to our west, however, and that keeps at least a mentionable risk of a bit of isolated shower/thunder development during the overnight hours.  By tomorrow (Sat) a big blast of dry central Asian air begins to sink southeastward into northern India -- and even though there will be a bit of wiggling and rippling coming through aloft on Sunday into early Monday, our air mass is going to be more moisture-deprived than we've seen this whole autumn season thus far, and that should prevent even the most isolated shower development.

All of next week is looking dry and quiet, with fairly typical temperatures for the latter half of November.  That means it will be on the chilly side, but actually quite pleasant during sunny daylight hours.
