The week of November 16th began with a cold and cloudy Sunday. Temperatures barely made it above freezing and snow flurries were in the air. The forecast for Monday calls for freezing rain in the morning followed by rain later in the day as a storm moves up from the South. By Tuesday the temperature is expected to plummet into the 20's and stay there until Thursday. The highs Thursday and Friday will hover right around freezing with snow possible on Friday. Saturday should be sunny with a high just below 40. This forecast is for the lower elevations. Hikers have already reported accumulating snow on the Catskill peaks! 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!
