wet/white monday... (am.16.jan.17)>

There has been a rapid changeover from rain to snow at my location up here on Tushita Road just below the mountaineering center (shortly after 7:00am).  As we know from last weekend, and many times before, we'll have to see if this is temporary, or a sign of what's to come during the next several hours.

My rain gauge shows 0.73" (1.9cm) of precipitation since last evening around 8:30pm when the first showers appeared, and 0.59" (1.5cm) of that amount has occurred since midnight.

The circulation of our storm system is centered just west-southwest of Srinagar early this morning, with very cold air wrapped into it now, and a good flow of moisture being pulled northward ahead of it.  The best chances for periods of rain and snow will continue until early to mid-afternoon...
