easter and elections... (am.27.mar.16)>

Well it has been very busy the past week -- Tibetan elections last Sunday, Holi on Wednesday and Thursday, Good Friday, and now it's Easter Sunday and also a local election day.  It's a bonus that the weather has cooperated for the most part.

Early this morning we have mostly clear skies and mild temps -- I'm recording an overnight low of just 58.3F (14.6C) here in the upper part of town.  There's been no rainfall since the very minor amounts we received early yesterday morning.

Our weather pattern should be a rather uneventful one all the way through the coming week.  There are going to be several weak disturbances rippling along the fairly rapid west-to-east flow aloft, but no major storm systems are showing up on the charts at all.  Do not be totally surprised if there is a flare-up of a thundershower right here along the front slopes of the mountains on just about any given afternoon, but otherwise we should see alternating periods of clouds and sun, with temperatures running very close to normal/average for the end of March and the start of April.
