February Thaw Headed Our Way


Subzero temperatures created beautiful winter scenes like these along Starrucca Creek near the village of Brandt in Susquehanna County yesterday. Most of this ice and snow is likely to be gone by the end of next week.

The current cold snap is by no means the worst that we have experienced here in the Endless Mountains, nor will it be particularly long-lasting. Nonetheless, most residents are already tired of it.

Warmer air will begin to enter the region on Saturday, and temperatures could remain above freezing both day and night from Monday through Thursday, when a mixed bag of precipitation is likely.

The long-term forecast follows:

Friday: 16/2 mostly sunny

Saturday: 35/25 partly cloudy

Sunday: 40/29 am clouds

Monday: 50/38 cloudy

Tuesday: 50/32 sprinkles

Wednesday: 40/32 cloudy

Thursday: 42/32 wintry mix

Friday: 35/20 am showers

Saturday: 25/15 snow showers

Sunday: 30/20 cloudy

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.
