Photos by Rick Hiduk
As temperatures crept toward 50 degrees in Susquehanna County this morning, a lone angler took to fishing on Lake Montrose. As highs reach the 60s in the region both tomorrow and Saturday, there will be fewer places left to participate in ice fishing safely.

This winter’s roller coaster ride continues with another surge of warm air overtaking the Endless Mountains through Saturday.

The pendulum will swing the other way on Sunday, when snow showers are back in the forecast. Nonetheless, most of next week looks to be warmer than average.

The eight-day forecast follows:

Wednesday Night’s expected low: 29

Thursday – 68/50 (pm storms)

Friday69/55 (am rain)

Saturday63/34 (storms)

Sunday40/30 (snow showers)

Monday – 45/32 (partly cloudy)

Tuesday50/42 (cloudy)

Wednesday 58/40 (showers)

Thursday44/30 (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.

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.
