temps take a dip... (pm.26.nov.15)>

Thursday's stats:

Low temp: 46.4F (8.0C) -- updated @ 8:50pm
High temp: 58.6F (14.8C)
Rainfall: 0.07" (2mm) -- updated at 8:50pm

It's overcast as total darkness takes over this evening, and there were some random sprinkles of light rain occurring last time I checked.  Today has worked out almost exactly according to expectations, with partly to mostly cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, and a few episodes of brief light rain showers since around 2:30pm.  We did have some decent periods of sunshine in the midst of it all as well, however.  The high temp at my location in the upper part of town was the coolest I've recorded since the 10th of the month -- just over two weeks ago.

Thanksgiving Day is dawning in the U.S. at this moment, so HAPPY THANKSGIVING to our many American readers.  Hope it's a blessed one for you and yours.  

The upper-level low pressure system we've been talking about all week is now churning its way across northern Pakistan, and its very center should be located just over the top of us around 6:00am tomorrow (Fri) morning.  The dynamic energy associated with this system is quite impressive, and if there was more moisture for the whole system to tap into, we'd be getting at least some moderate amounts of rain out of this.  In reality, the moisture supply is very limited, and thus, the rain shower activity has been very scattered and generally light.  I think there is a chance we could at least get enough rain to measure in the gauge tonight into very early Friday morning, but then as the center of the upper-level circulation moves to the east, the precipitation risk will come to an end.

Already we're tasting some cooler air, and it certainly looks like our temperatures will be cooler during the next few days than we've seen since earlier in the month.  But there will be at least a slight moderation in temps as we transition into December, with little if any chance of rain next week -- according to the latest data.
