wxgeek is bored... (pm.13.jan.16)>

Wednesday's stats:

Low temp: 42.9F (6.1C)
High temp: 50.9F (10.5C)
Precipitation: none

We have several different varieties of patchy cloudiness across the area early tonight -- and it's quite hazy as well.  I am not aware of even a single drop of rain since last report, though we did have mostly cloudy skies overnight, and then a fairly equal mix of clouds, sun and haze throughout the day.  Temperatures, as expected, were a degree or two cooler today.

I will be honest and say that I am running out of things to talk about lately... it seems to be the same-old-same-old day after day, as we continue to experience relatively dry and mild weather since just after Christmas.  Winter has been essentially a "no show" so far.

The only thing to talk about is the continuing parade of weak upper-level disturbances moving from west to east across the western Himalayas and extreme northern India.  These minor waves in the flow keep bringing us pulses of mainly high cloudiness in between periods of sun, and minor temperature fluctuations.  There's only been 0.40" (1.0cm) of precipitation during the month of January thus far, and if the computer model projections are correct, it's going to be hard to add much of substance to that total over the course of the coming week or more.  We'll get another slight chance of a random/isolated light shower tomorrow night (Thu) into early Friday, and maybe again sometime around Sunday or Monday... but that's it.  Temps should remain just on the plus-side of normal/average for the season.
