more wet weather ahead... (pm.12.jan.17)>

Thursday's stats:

Low temp: 35.7F (2.1C)

High temp: 44.5F (6.9C)
Precipitation: none

This break in the action is a welcome relief for most of us, after the very wet January we've been contending with until just a couple of days ago.  BUT -- it is indeed only a temporary break, because a new storm system will be organizing as we move into the weekend.  Right now it looks like we could see some scattered mainly light rain showers break out as early as Saturday, with the better chance of more significant precipitation holding off until late Sunday through Monday.

The latest data indicates that the vast majority of the snowfall should again remain above McLeod Ganj, with temperatures expected to be perhaps slightly warmer than during last weekend's system.  Having said that, the freezing level here along the front slopes of the mountains is often very unpredictable, so we will have to be in preparation mode as the precipitation cranks up.
