This weekend in the Adirondacks

John Warren from the Adirondack Almanack looks at outdoor recreation conditions around the Adirondacks each weekend.

The fire danger is low and waters remain well above what is normal for late August. Waters are not high enough to inhibit crossings, but are high enough to keep rafters happy.  Go to full article

This weekend in the Adirondacks

John Warren from the Adirondack Almanack looks at outdoor recreation conditions around the Adirondacks each weekend.

Autopsy for a brutal winter season

It's hard to remember on a beautiful summer morning like this one, but last winter was long and grueling here in the North Country.

There was a ferocious ice storm in December and stretches of brutal cold that continued late into the spring. A lot of those road crews out on the highways this month are still repairing potholes and frost heaves caused by record-low temperatures.

The thing is, that's not what scientists were expecting. Weather models going into the winter predicted a fairly normal, or even a mild season. Meteorologists way the culprit was a dramatic shift in the big air currents that flow across North America.  Go to full article
