truly dull... (pm.09.jan.16)>

Saturday's stats:

Low temp: 40.7F (4.8C)
High temp: 50.3F (10.2C)
Precipitation: none

Apart from some streaks of high cirrus clouds, our skies are crisp and mostly clear just after sunset this evening.  Today's high temp at my location in the upper part of town was the coolest since Christmas Day, in spite of the fact that we enjoyed a majority of sunshine.  It's still actually a couple of degrees milder than average/normal for this time of year.

Looking ahead to the next week to ten days or so -- things appear quite dull and boring, to be honest.  There are a few ripples of energy and upper-level disturbances forecast to move across northern India, but there is no indication (as of now) of any kind of significant moisture tap with any of these weak systems, and that's going to keep precipitation development minimal.  It does look like our temps will average out cooler than we've seen during the first part of this month, though a drop to consistently normal to below normal temps does not appear likely.

The best chance of picking up some random light shower action would be on Wednesday and Friday, but even then there's nothing impressive at all to look forward to.  If you like calm and quiet and uneventful weather, congratulations.  But if you'd like to see some kind of authentic January winter thrills, I'm sure you are disappointed (as am I)...
