pleasantly uneventful... (pm.28.nov.16)>

Monday's stats:

Low temp: 55.9F (13.3C)
High temp: 63.5F (17.5C)
Rainfall: none

Our late evening sky is totally clear, after a mostly sunny Monday.  There were some patchy high clouds drifting by overhead for two or three hours right in the middle of the day, but the sunshine was definitely the predominant feature.  The high temp was the coolest I've recorded since last Thursday, but we're still running about 7ºF/4ºC above normal for the tail end of November.  There was a rather large variation in humidity levels today -- from 18% this morning, to around 42% during the mid-afternoon.

There's not much to watch in the weather department during the coming several days, and actually, it's been a bit of a stretch to come up with anything at all to be concerned about for the last several weeks.  There is another upper-level disturbance scheduled to sweep across extreme northern India during the mid-week period, but it will do nothing more than increase our high cloudiness potential from late tomorrow through Wednesday night.  Scattered rain and snow showers are being forecast again by the computer models for the highest mountain areas to our north, but the risk of even a drop or two of rain right here in Mcleod will be barely above 10%.

After this little system passes by, temperatures will cool of just a bit.  BUT -- we're still talking about an unseasonably mild air mass as we cross into the new month, with no evidence of a truly substantial plunge in temps on the horizon.
