This Weekend in the Adirondacks

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

It's forecast to be an outstanding weekend around the region with clear skies and the possibility of reaching the 90 degree mark in some areas on Sunday. It's the peak of the black fly season, however, and by some accounts they are particularly bad this year. Wear light-colored loose fitting clothing to avoid the worst of the black fly season.  Go to full article

This weekend in the Adirondacks

John Warren from the Adirondack Almanack looks at outdoor recreation conditions around the Adirondacks for the Memorial Day Weekend.

Scattered showers and the possibility of an afternoon thunderstorm this weekend will keep trails wet and muddy and may raise the levels of rivers and streams after rain events so that some crossings may not be accessible.

Expect to encounter increased visitors to trails and trail head parking areas, campgrounds, and on the region's waters, so seek backcountry recreation opportunities in less-visited areas of the Adirondack Park.  Go to full article

Rain through Sunday morning will exacerbate our already wet and muddy trail conditions and raise the levels of rivers and streams so that some crossing may not be accessible and trails near waterways may be flooded on Sunday morning before skies clear and winds - which are expected to be 10-15 miles per hour Friday and Saturday - begin to calm. Rains are expected to be heaviest on south and southestern slopes.  Go to full article
