Persistent b
risk winds kept side roads covered with drifting snow yesterday in Washington Township, Wyoming County, while US Route 6 was relatively clear for traffic, as seen from Apple Wagon Antique Mall on Russell Hill. A particularly messy winter storm is predicted to move in tonight.

Some places in the Endless Mountains could reach a balmy 28 degrees today before the temperature dives back into the teens ahead of a slow-moving storm system that will reach the area around midnight.

Most of us will wake up tomorrow to several inches of snow on the ground, followed by a period of freezing rain, then all rain into Saturday evening. After a break in the action, showers are expected to pick up again early Sunday morning. A steady rain could end as a period of snow as temperatures plunge 30 degrees Sunday evening.

The new week will start out sunny and typically cold. Travel weather for Christmas Eve looks good at this time. The eight-day forecast follows:

Friday – overnight Low 16 (snow)

Saturday – 37/37 (snow to rain)

Sunday – 45/15 (rain and wind)

Monday – 25/18 (sunny)

Tuesday – 36/25 (sunny)

Wednesday – 40/25 (partly cloudy)

Thursday – 40/30 (cloudy)

Friday – 37/27 (partly cloudy)

Saturday – 40/30 (partly cloudy)

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. Send us your Weather Window photos.
