**Added @ 9:10pm... Our weakening upper-level low pressure circulation center is right on top of Lahore, Pakistan late this evening, and will move quickly east-northeast and be sheared out over the mountains during the next 12-18 hours or so.  It's going to be a bit touch-and-go overnight into early Friday morning, as a small pocket of colder air moves overhead.  Even now there is some lightning out there, along with continuing light rain showers.  Thus far the snow line and freezing level have remained far above McLeod, but we still have some time to wait and see what might happen before all is said and done.

Gradually improving conditions are expected on Friday, with temps bouncing back quickly again over the weekend into a slightly above normal range for the final days of January.

But the weather pattern continues to look active, changeable and potentially stormy during the next few weeks.  It is still winter.
