The sun sets over Meshoppen and Mehoopany townships in Wyoming County (top) as seen from Auburn Township in Susquehanna County on Monday afternoon.

Additional snow is unlikely before and immediately after Christmas this year, leaving only those in the highest elevations of the Endless Mountains like LaPorte in Sullivan County and much of the Susquehanna County plateau (above) with a snow pack for the holiday.

Snow showers could precede light rain on Saturday morning, with another chance of rain on Monday. There is a chance for rain changing to snow later next week. The eight-day forecast follows:

Thursday – overnight low 30 (clearing)

Friday42/30 (sunny)

Christmas Eve – 40/30 (am showers)

Christmas Day – 40/30 (clearing)

Monday45/45 (showers)

Tuesday42/25 (partly cloudy)

Wednesday 35/30 (sunny)

Thursday42/30 (rain to snow)

Friday35/20 (am snow)

Saturday30/25 (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.

About Author

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.
