fantastic for late november... (pm.27.nov.16)>

Sunday's stats:

Low temp: 57.2F (14.0C)
High temp: 64.4F (18.0C)
Rainfall: none

For the first time in just over one week, we have mostly clear skies during this hour after sunset -- at the end of a day which featured more sunshine, also, than we've seen in over a week.  Temperatures remain very mild for late November, with both the high and low temps for the day not far from the warmest readings of the entire month.  Humidity ranged between 25 and 40%.

The upper-level low pressure system which kept us in and out of numerous periods of high clouds throughout all of last week has now pretty much dissipated, with its remnants over far northwestern China.  That has allowed a weak ridge of high pressure to build over us, which should provide generally clear skies during the first part of this new week.  Then, we're watching another upper-level disturbance way off to the west -- but this will be a fast-mover, zipping by between late Tuesday and late Wednesday.  Again, we will probably see an increase in mainly high clouds, but as has been the case for the last six or seven weeks, rain chances will be very slim.

In the wake of this mid-week system, temps should cool off a few degrees, but it still looks like we will remain in the above normal range as we head into December.  Amazing that we've still not really dealt with any genuinely cold weather yet this season...
