Preparation for the upcoming tourist season and the return of “cottagers” was apparent in the Sullivan County communities of Lake Mokoma (top) and Eagles Mere (above) on Saturday. Most clubs and attractions are set to open the weekend of May 4.

Despite a gloomy Sunday and the chance for some wet snow (!) during the early morning hours of Monday, a great warm-up should be underway by Tuesday, with temperatures approaching 80 mid week.

The best news? After tonight, there are no freezing temperatures in sight!

The eight day forecast follows:

Sunday: showers/flurries 45/32

Monday: partly cloudy 60/38

Tuesday: sunny 75/50

Wednesday: sunny 80/60

Thursday: pm storms 80/60

Friday: pm storms 75/53

Saturday: partly sunny 65/45

Sunday: partly cloudy 65/42

The weather report is based on expected conditions at approximately 1,100 ft elevation in Meshoppen Township, Wyoming County, near the center of the Endless Mountains region. Residents of river towns can generally expect slightly higher temperatures, while those at higher elevations may experience lower temperatures.

Managing Editor of, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
