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.
