**Our six-day rainfall total, since last Saturday, is 10.55" (26.8cm). That's one heck of a big amount of rain for so early in our evolving monsoon season...

calm week unfolding... (pm.15.nov.15)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 54.3F (12.4C)
High temp: 63.8F (17.7C)
Rainfall: none

There's a fairly extensive layer of mid-level clouds blanketing the area as night falls this evening.  But we came up with a majority of sunshine again today, though there was a bit more scattered cloud development than we saw yesterday.  Humidity was in the 30-40% range all day, as temperatures remain a bit milder than we would expect for this stage of November.  That's been the case since Thursday, actually.

The center of an upper-level low pressure system is way north of us in Kazakhstan this evening, but a weak low pressure trough extends south of the center itself, and is now swinging across Jammu & Kashmir.  It's responsible for the increased cloudiness we're dealing with at the moment, and I wouldn't be totally shocked if there were some sprinkles or an isolated light shower somewhere around the area overnight.  This system will be out of here tomorrow morning, setting us up for what looks like nearly an entire week of stable and quiet weather conditions.

Temperatures will cool off just a couple of degrees tomorrow into Tuesday, but then a moderating trend will kick in again for the rest of the week.  A massive high pressure ridge will build across most of India by Wednesday, and then dominate the weather pattern through the weekend.  Barring increasing high cloud development by Friday or so, we may be in line for some unseasonably warm temps during the Thursday through Saturday period.  Humidity will most likely average its lowest of season...
