Traditionally, “Indian Summer” is a stretch of warm dry weather in October or November after a frost has been experienced. Though the temperatures of the past few days and nights weren’t record setting, they did usher in an early frost for most residents of the Endless Mountains.

It appears that it will remain warm and dry well into the weekend, with the next chance of rain coming Sunday evening at the earliest. A couple of soggy days will be followed by another cool down, and more frost.

The long-term forecast follows:

Tuesday: clear tonight –/47

Wednesday: sunny 75/49

Thursday: partly sunny 77/53

Friday: mostly sunny 78/53

Saturday: partly cloudy 76/59

Sunday: partly sunny 77/60

Monday: showers 72/55

Tuesday: am showers 68/48

Wednesday: partly sunny 60/40

Thursday: partly sunny 58/38

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 (like Montrose) may experience lower temperatures.
