beautifully boring... (pm.02.nov.16)>

Wednesday's stats:

Low temp: 55.2F (12.9C)
High temp: 64.2F (17.9C)
Rainfall: none

It's totally clear late this evening, with a beautiful, vivid crescent moon visible in the southwestern sky.  It's been a mostly sunny Wednesday, with cloud development over the mountains this afternoon remaining very much under control, and dissipation happening rapidly during the hour before sunset.  Temperatures have actually been climbing slightly (both high and low) the last 2-3 days, which is keeping us running comfortably above normal for the start of November.  Humidity was again fairly steady between 45 and 50%.

It really is snooze-ville on the weather front these days, as we get to enjoy the most dry and quiet and pleasant weather of the entire year.  Our dry streak is now close to the longest of 2016 (the previous being from January into February), and the combination of temperature and humidity has kept us very much in the comfort zone for the autumn season.

There's some rather potent upper-level energy projected to drop in from the northwest this weekend, however, and if there was any kind of marginally significant moisture available, we might see some isolated to scattered thundershower action popping up between late Friday and mid-day Saturday.  But that is not the case, so I think we'll only have a slight chance of a random, brief, light shower somewhere around the area during the first part of the weekend.  We will see our next drop in temps, however, which will move us closer in the direction of normal/average for this time of year.
