The week of October 19th began with a cool and windy Sunday. Much of the Catskills saw a mix of rain and snow which was more prominent to the north. Monday was a sunnier day with highs in the low 50's and partly sunny skies. The forecast for Tuesday through Thursday is for periods or rain and cloudy skies with temperatures in the low 50's. The rain should break on Friday but showers are still possible with some clouds. Saturday and Sunday both seem to be sunny with temperatures rising a bit into the high 50's. Looking ahead to next week the forecast calls for sunny days for most of the week. The fall colors are fast fading as breezes and showers bring down more and more leaves. Most locations in the Catskills are past peak but pockets of bright colors still can be found. Further south there may still be some colors visible. Remember, the weather forecast is only a prediction and always contains percentages. Be prepared and have a plan for the most likely and least likely forecast! Are you prepared to stay out overnight on a trail? Conditions in the morning can change drastically by afternoon. Conditions at the trailhead do not always reflect the conditions on the peaks! Variable trail and weather conditions are a hallmark of these mountains. BE CAREFUL AND BE PREPARED!
