Anyone over 30 can remember snow before or on Halloween. To some, it’s a cruel trick and, to others, a refreshing treat. While the chance of some wet snow is highest along Pennsylvania’s northern tier on Friday morning, overnight lows through the weekend will likely freeze whatever vegetation that has not already been nipped by numerous frosts.

The extended forecast hints at some milder weather by the middle of next week.

The long-term forecast follows:

Thursday: rain 45/35

Friday: am rain/snow 40/25

Saturday: sunny 45/32

Sunday: pm showers 52/28

Monday: partly cloudy 35/25

Tuesday: partly cloudy 45/30

Wednesday: sunny 56/34

Thursday: partly sunny 60/45

Friday: partly cloudy 63/43

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.
