turbulent sunday... (am.05.feb.17)>

Saturday's stats:

Low temp: 49.1F (9.5C)
High temp: 57.7F (14.3C)
Precipitation: 0.13" (3mm) -- 9:20pm thru midnight

We can add another 0.26" (7mm) to yesterday's rainfall total (above), as of 7:00am, but there are more thundershowers erupting overhead which will keep the rainfall tally climbing.

The dynamic center of the upper-level storm system responsible for the wild weather since last evening is just east of Kabul, moving steadily to the east-northeast.  We're in the moist and active quadrant of the storm system, and should remain in this vulnerable position for most of today (Sun).  Waves of showers and thunderstorms have been developing and moving northward during the last 12 hours or so, but it does look like the best conditions for this convective development will wane by tonight or very early Monday morning.

Colder air is gradually arriving, but more and more it's looking like the freezing level will have a hard time making it anywhere close to McLeod Ganj.  I'll be surprised if significant snowfall occurs below Magic View with this system... but of course I have been surprised before.
