Abnormally Cold Weather Perfect Catalyst for Coastal Storm


That dusting of snow that some residents in Bradford and Sullivan counties woke up to on Tuesday morning was nothing compared to what might be coming tomorrow and Friday.

Significant wet snow and icing are probable tomorrow into Friday as a coastal storm develops and moves across the region from midday Thursday to Friday morning. The storm should start as snow, with a changeover to sleet and freezing rain for those at lower elevations. Cold air rushing in behind the storm should bring another round of snow showers on Friday morning.

Total accumulations could vary greatly, depending on elevation and how long its stays below freezing where you are. Estimates for the four-county region range from 3 to 12 inches. 

Otherwise, temperatures will remain below average through the next week with additional chances for frozen precipitation.

The long-term forecast follows:

Wednesday night: 23 partly cloudy

Thursday: 32/28 afternoon snow

Friday: 38/32 morning snow

Saturday: 38/25 breezy

Sunday: 35/25 cloudy

Monday: 35/20 morning snow

Tuesday: 30/20 cloudy

Wednesday: 35/22 partly cloudy

Thursday: 35/25 mostly sunny

Friday: 38/26 wintery mix

The EndlessMtnLifestyles.com 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.

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.
