only minor issues... (pm.10.nov.16)>

Thursday's stats:

Low temp: 57.6F (14.2C)
High temp: 64.3F (17.9C)
Rainfall: none

We've returned to mostly clear skies late this evening, but there was quite a lot of high cloudiness drifting across our autumn sky today, posing a challenge to the sun.  It was rarely entirely overcast, but the filtered sunshine did keep our daytime high a bit lower than yesterday.  Humidity was extremely low all day -- ranging from 20 to 38%.

The latest satellite pics show that streak of high cloudiness departing to the east already, in advance of an upper-level circulation center that will drop into Himalayan north India as the weekend arrives.  This minor system will deliver a fresh batch of slightly cooler central Asian air, though we're still not talking about temperatures which will be below normal for what is fast becoming the middle of November.  I'm stubbornly keeping a slight chance of some kind of rogue/random shower in the forecast for Saturday, but chances are low enough that it's almost not mentionable at all.

All of the computer models going forward from early next week are absolutely devoid of any kind of significant storm system, precipitation, or radical swing in temps -- all the way into the final days of the month.  November IS the driest month of the year, on average, but the way things are going, it could end up even drier than normal.
