humidity still too high... (pm.03.oct.16)>

Monday's stats:

Low temp: 63.1F (17.3C)
High temp: 70.7F (21.5C)
Rainfall: none

Well, we managed to make it through the day without a deluge... for the first time this October.  We've still had to contend with a lot of cloudiness and fog since the late morning, but at least here in the immediate McLeod area, there has been no rain that I've witnessed.  The sun was a bit more dominant during the early to mid-morning hours, which was very nice to see, but the humidity remains far too high for this time of year -- right around 85% for the daily average.

Models are showing very little if any precipitation development across Himalayan north India over the course of the next few days... but of course that doesn't mean there won't be some isolated shower/thunder development somewhere along mainly the southwest-facing mountain slopes during the afternoon hours.  There are also hints of some slightly drier air trying to work its way in from the west-northwest, but whether that translates into an actual lowering of our extremely high humidity levels (or not) remains to be seen.

Yet another bit of resurgent moisture is projected over the coming weekend, but THEN, there appears to be a much more dramatic push of relatively drier air on the way about one week from right now.  From this vantage point, it does look like a very positive shift in the overall weather pattern will occur, but of course we're going to have to check it day-by-day to see if it's for real.

I've posted a recap of this year's monsoon stats, on MONSOON 2016 (tab above), and THE 7-DAY OUTLOOK is back up and running as well...
