in need of something... (pm.12.jan.16)>

Tuesday's stats:

Low temp: 46.1F (7.8C)
High temp: 53.0F (11.7C)
Today's precipitation: none
January precipitation: 0.40" (1.0cm)

Winding back the calendar....


DECEMBER: 2.53" (6.4cm)
NOVEMBER: 0.91" (2.3cm)
OCTOBER: 1.79" (4.5cm)

So that's a grand total of 5.63" (14.3cm) since the 1st of October, nearly three and a half months ago.  That's about the amount of rain we average in just 4 DAYS during the middle of the monsoon season.  Kind of hard to comprehend.

A weak disturbance will move across Himalayan north India later tonight into Wednesday, with another upper-level feature scheduled to pass overhead on Friday into early Saturday - but neither of these look very promising in terms of bringing us some much-needed winter precipitation.
