The Susquehanna River was rising quickly in Wysox (top) and Towanda on Wednesday afternoon, but predicted crests that would have put the flood-prone waterway over its banks at several locations had been scaled back by Wednesday evening.

Blue skies today almost seem like an anomoly with another round of heavy showers in the forecast for tomorrow. A more likely break in the pattern over the weekend will allow creeks and the Susquehanna River to recede, though a humid, tropical flow will return next week.

The eight day forecast follows:

Thursday night: partly cloudy 65

Friday: 80/60 thunderstorms

Saturday: 78/58 partly cloudy

Sunday: 78/60 mostly cloudy

Monday: 78/62 pm showers

Tuesday: 80/68 scattered storms

Wednesday: 80/64 scattered storms

Thursday: 80/64 scattered storms

Friday: 80/64 scattered storms

About Author

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, 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.
