dry season groove... (pm.22.oct.16)>

Saturday's stats:

Low temp: 57.7F (14.3C)
High temp: 68.7F (20.4C)
Rainfall: none

The average humidity level today has been the lowest since way back on the 25th-26th of May, and cloud development during the PM hours was the most feeble since before the start of the monsoon season about four months ago.  Yes, it has been a glorious October day, with tons of sunshine, and temperature which remain a bit warmer than normal for this time of year.  Actually, today's high temp was the coolest I've recorded this month, but we're still above the norm.

The humidity was as low as 28% at my location in the upper part of town this morning, but rebounded to about 44% late this afternoon.  Those kinds of numbers have a way of erasing the memory of the 80-100% humidity readings we were dealing with day after day after day after day until just a couple of weeks ago.

Our overall weather pattern will remain fairly typical for this time of year, in terms of the lack of moisture and the predominance of sunshine.  And even our above-normal temps so far this month should continue to trend lower, and closer to the normal range over the course of the next several days.  From this vantage point, the only risk of some kind of random/fleeting shower activity seems to be confined to Tuesday, and again the following Sunday.  This autumn, the dry season is definitely living up to expectations...
