Very Little Precipitation on the Horizon


The rays of the setting sun are fainter every day as the Winter Solstice approaches, as seen from Nimble Road in Mehoopany, looking east across the river toward Procter & Gamble (top) with the Pizza Barn (above) on the right.

Those looking for some snow will be hard-pressed to see any over the next two-weeks according to long-term forecasts. The United States as a whole is already experiencing a “snow drought” this season.

A brief warm-up underway today and tomorrow will give way to more seasonable temperatures with a rigorous freeze-thaw cycle underway. Watch for rocks in the road in narrow stretches of highway along mountainsides and cliffs.

The eight day forecast follows:

Tuesday night low: 38 partly cloudy

Wednesday: 48/25 partly cloudy

Thursday: 44/35 late showers

Friday: 44/25 clearing

Saturday: 44/27 partly cloudy

Sunday: 44/27 partly cloudy

Monday: 44/33 partly cloudy

Tuesday: 46/35 showers

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.

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.
