Old Man Winter has arrived and seems intent on holding court over the Endless Mountains well into the middle of December. Expect temperatures below freezing most of the time.

Bursts of low pressure out of Canada and the upper mid west are likely to gather moisture as they move across the great lakes, bringing flurries, squalls and a coating of snow to random communities in the four-county region.

The eight-day forecast follows:

Thursday night’s expected low: 23 (partly cloudy)

Friday35/22 (mostly sunny)

Saturday38/25 (flurries)

About Author

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, 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.
