seasonably chilly... (pm.14.dec.16)>

Wednesday's stats:

Low temp: 46.0F (7.8C)
High temp: 53.8F (12.1C)
Rainfall: none

It's absolutely clear late this evening, as we await the full moon which will be appearing over the Dhauladhars very shortly.  There were only the faintest and feeblest clouds over the mountain peaks late this afternoon, otherwise we've had a day of full sunshine, with humidity running in the 38-48% range.  Today's temps (both hi and lo) were the coolest I've recorded this season so far, and not far at all off the mark for mid-December averages.

There's no precipitation on the horizon for us, but there may be some clouds on the way.  A very brisk flow at the jet stream level will settle across northern India during the coming few days, running along the north side of a strong high pressure ridge developing across central and southern parts of the subcontinent.  It's probable that we'll see some waves of high clouds as early as tomorrow, but more likely off-and-on through the weekend into early next week.

Temperatures will be gradually on the rise between tomorrow and Monday, taking us back above normal for this time of year -- but -- if we do end up with some extended periods of high cloudiness during the daylight hours, that's going to restrict that rise in temps.  Weather excitement is certainly lacking these days...
