now it's official... (am.06.oct.16)>

It's official -- the withdrawal of MONSOON 2016 has been declared for remaining parts of Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, and all but the extreme eastern border of Himachal Pradesh.  October 5th is approximately 18 days LATER than normal for us to be saying goodbye to the monsoon season.

Now we get to see if the push of drier air which arrived late yesterday afternoon is going to hang around, or whether we will still have to battle significant cloud/fog development issues during the mid-day into the afternoon hours.  This morning, my humidity reading is just 51%, so that's a very positive sign.  Also, let's not forget the risk of some isolated shower/thunder activity along the mountains during the PM hours.

An even more definitively drier and autumn-looking air mass is scheduled to move in by Monday into Tuesday, which should take our humidity levels lower and lower still.
