Bitter Cold to Follow Snow Storm

It’s hard to deny the beauty of a fresh snowfall. While most of us in the Endless Mountains received more snow than forecasters predicted, Susquehanna and Bradford counties were especially hard hit with more than 30 inches reported in some areas like Towanda, where these photos were snapped this morning in the area of Riverside Cemetery.

The piles of new snow will go nowhere fast as the coldest temperatures of the season pull in behind the storm. The best news is that winds should remain light, which will limit drifting.

A gradual warm-up will put us near 40 again by next week, and some long-term forecasts suggest that we might get some snow on Christmas day.

The long-term forecast follows:

Thursday night: 14 partly cloudy

Friday: 27/9 partly cloudy

Saturday: 31/23 cloudy

Sunday: 34/29 snow showers

Monday: 38/30 mostly cloudy

Tuesday: 38/22 partly sunny

Wednesday: 40/32 mostly cloudy

Thursday: 41/22 rain to snow

Christmas Day: 26/16 snow showers

Saturday: 27/17 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.
