ripple after ripple... (pm.08.nov.15)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 52.9F (11.6C)
High temp: 60.2F (15.7C)
Rainfall: none

It's hazy and partly cloudy out there as the sky goes completely dark on us this Sunday evening.  We did get some sun today, but it came and went very frequently, and never stayed around for long.  It was even completely absent after about 3:00pm or so.  The humidity reading at my location in the upper part of town fluctuated between 39% and 50%, with the high temp exactly equaling yesterday's.

So far, this November has featured more cloudiness than normal, though measurable rainfall has been confined to the period between the afternoon of the 4th and the early morning hours of the 5th.  It looks like we're going to have to resign ourselves to more of these sunshine/cloud wrestling matches over the course of the next week, as the upper-level flow is aligned in such a way as to allow several weak disturbances to ripple across north India.  Although there is a risk of a few scattered light showers in the forecast tomorrow (Mon) and Tuesday, and again on Friday, the potential for significant amounts of rain is very small -- at least the way the data is looking right now.

I mentioned last evening that the models were hinting at a fairly impressive warming trend by the end of the week.  That may still be the case, but with short daylight hours this time of year, we're going to have to get rid of these daily periods of cloudiness to cash in on any kind of decent warm-up.
