easy treatment... (pm.11.jan.16)>

Monday's stats:

Low temp: 45.9F (7.7C)
High temp: 53.9F (12.2C)
Precipitation: none

Scattered high clouds grace the sky on this Monday evening, here at the end of a day which featured almost equal parts sun and high cloudiness.  I was actually a bit surprised that there was so much of that thin cirrus moving through today -- which did manage to prevent our temps from rising quite as much as expected.  Still, we're running significantly milder than normal for this time of year.

There will be two upper-level disturbances moving across northern India during the remainder of this week, the first of which is now centered over extreme eastern Iran.  It will move slowly eastward during the next 36 hours, and be centered right on top of us on Wednesday morning.  Moisture is severely limited, and the dynamic energy isn't much to get excited about either -- so that means we'll most likely see only an increased amount of cloud cover mid-day tomorrow (Tue) through Wednesday, along with a risk of some random/isolated brief light rain showers here and there.  If we end up with anything even measurable, I'll be at least mildly surprised.

The second upper-level system will drift through on Friday into early Saturday, giving us a repeat of the above scenario.  Again, chances of significant precipitation will be small.  Slightly cooler air is still expected to ease in gradually during the latter part of the week, but as I've said over and over again -- we're still not talking about anything very cold at all, considering the fact that it's the bull's eye center of the winter season.
