storm system developing... (am.06.jan.17)>

A developing strong and broad area of low pressure in the upper-atmosphere is located just to our west-northwest at the moment.  This system has the look of the strongest storm system (by far) of this winter season, and should make for an interesting weekend.

The last few runs of computer model data are pointing to some moderate to heavy precipitation across Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand between mid-day today (Fri) and Sunday -- combined with a massive plunge in temperatures, which could bring the freezing level close to our elevation.

Of course we all know that it is very hard to nail down the exact placement of the rain/snow line, but from current temperature profile projections, we could find ourselves on the "white" side of that line before Sunday morning rolls around.
