38 rainless days... (pm.18.nov.16)>

Friday's stats:

Low temp: 54.7F (12.6C)
High temp: 62.0F (16.7C)
Rainfall: none

Today's high temp was the warmest since eight days ago, but was actually just a degree or two cooler than expected.  It's been another day with sunshine dominating easily, with only the most paltry appearances of any cloudiness of any variety whatsoever.  Humidity ranged from a low of about 26% during the mid-morning, to a high of 42% late this afternoon.

We've now hit 38 days in a row without so much as a single drop of rain, and even though it is the dry season, that's still something quite remarkable.  Most years, we never get a streak of totally rainless days like we are experiencing right now.  And it looks like we stand a very good chance of continuing this rain-free stretch of weather, though that may not be the case in areas up-mountain from us, to the north and northeast.  The models are still advertising a rather significant shift in the pattern next week, with the potential for some moderate snowfall in the higher elevations of Kashmir/Ladakh and northern and eastern Himachal Pradesh.  Right now, it looks like we may escape the precipitation altogether here in McLeod, but much more cloudiness seems to be on the way for us next week.

It's also possible, or even quite likely, that we'll see the coolest temps of the season by Wednesday or Thursday.  But as we get closer to December's arrival, it is time for a more significant cool-down, so this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise...
