Added @ 8:50pm...  Still keeping an eye on a developing weather system very far to our west, in the vicinity of Iraq, late this evening.  It's not much to speak of at the moment, but an upper-level low pressure center will be developing by late Tuesday over Afghanistan, and will intensify further on Wednesday and Thursday as it moves into central Pakistan.  Right now it's looking like this system is going to tap into a large amount of moisture from the Arabian Sea and pull it northward into the western Himalayan region.  Precipitation amounts should be moderate to heavy in our general area between late Tuesday night and early Friday morning, with much colder air arriving sometime on Thursday as well.  Of course heavy snow is likely in the mountains above us, with rain, thunderstorms, very gusty winds, and chance of rain mixing with and/or changing to snow right here in McLeod during that period........
