sogginess ahead... (pm.24.jan.17)>

Tuesday's stats:

Low temp: 45.5F (7.5C) -- at 11:50am
High temp: 53.8F (12.1C) -- 8:15am
Precipitation: 0.10" (2mm) 

Added @ 8:55pm... A large weather system is still in its organizational phase late this evening, with the center of a low pressure circulation moving across extreme southern Iran.  A lot of moisture from the Arabian Sea is being tapped into and pulled northward ahead of the circulation center, but also a big blob of very mild air.  This is going to keep our temperatures well above the normal range for a late January weather system, and will probably keep the freezing level quite high uphill until sometime Thursday night or early Friday morning.  

Right now, precipitation amounts are looking big for most of Himachal Pradesh... maybe in the neighborhood of 8-9cm (3 to 3.5") by the time it all comes to an end sometime on Friday.
