The forecast for the week of August 31st began with a call for rain and thunderstorms on Sunday for Livingston Manor which did not materialize. The storms did strike areas to the north and south. Monday and Tuesday may see passing showers and thunderstorms throughout the area but the weather pattern is very unstable. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 80's. The forecast for Wednesday calls for clearing skies with slightly lower temperatures. Thursday and Friday appear to be mostly sunny with temperatures again increasing into the 80's. Presently there is a possibility of afternoon thunderstorms on Saturday. 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!
