truly spectacular... (pm.09.nov.16)>

Wednesday's stats:

Low temp: 56.5F (13.6C)
High temp: 66.2F (19.0C)
Rainfall: none

A few wisps of high clouds are lingering in the western sky at nightfall, otherwise it's clear -- and the haze is not much of an issue here at our elevation.  It has been a spectacular day, all around, with nearly unlimited sunshine, very low humidity, and temperatures which have rebounded into a range that is quite a bit warmer than normal for this stage of November.  This morning, my humidity reading dipped below 20% for an hour or so, which is the first time I've seen that happening this season.

There are only the most minor fluctuations in our overall weather pattern expected during the coming several days, and if extended range models are to be believed, perhaps all the way until the end of the month.  Currently our temps are a few degrees above normal, but we should see somewhat of a cool-down this weekend -- though it's still not the kind of drop that is going to create much drama.  An upper-level circulation center will slide in from the west-northwest Friday into Saturday, bringing that cooler air, but as of now, it's still looking like the risk of a random shower will be only in the 10-20% range at most.

And that's about all I can find to say tonight.  Check THE 7-DAY OUTLOOK (above) for forecast details.
