North Fork weather

Anyone who has lived on the North Fork knows that the weather changes a great deal depending on where you are on the road. If you type in 59928 on the weather site, then you end up with Polebridge weather only. NOAA to the rescue. The links below take you to that part of the road of interest to you. Now you can better calculate where you’re probably going to need to chain up.
