the best of the best... (pm.23.oct.16)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 57.4F (14.1C)
High temp: 68.1F (20.1C)
Rainfall: none

Gorgeous.  Perfection.  Considering all the weather variables we experience around here over the course of a year, today has been about as bright and dry and comfortable as it gets.  Other than just a few little puffs of cumulus that tried hard to develop along the immediate Dhauladhar peaks after about 1:00pm, we had full sunshine throughout the day.  Humidity averaged right around 38-40%.

There's still nothing at all happening that would cause us to be concerned about a turn to any kind of inclement weather -- as the upper-level flow from the west-northwest continues to funnel in dry and stable air from central Asia.  A few very weak circulations aloft will drift by tomorrow into Tuesday, and again next weekend, but with moisture very very low, it's going to be hard to see much in the way of shower development.

The temperature trend the last ten days or so has been ever-so-slowly downward, and it looks like that should continue.  We're not talking about any kind of dramatic plunge in temps, but day-by-day, it's getting incrementally cooler.
