Fall Foliage Already Reported In Parts Of NYS [MAP]
Technically, we're still in the season of summer, and the official kickoff of the fall won't be until September 22nd, but signs are already here that fall is on the doorstep.
Pumpkin farms are opening, corn mazes are ready to go, apple-picking is back, and even fall foliage has begun!
According to WIVB, the Fall Foliage Report is already back for New York State, and parts of the state are already reporting signs of the fall foliage beginning.
Check out the map below.
I Love NY is reporting fall foliage in upstate regions, such as the Adirondacks, Capital-Saratoga, Catskills, Central New York, Hudson Valley, and Thousand Islands-Seaway.
For instance, in Herkimer County, in the Adirondacks, they're predicting a 20 percent color change this weekend, with average leaves of gold and yellow. The Lake Placid area is expected to be at a 10 percent color change this weekend.
If you're not familiar with the report, it's information is obtained by observers and the colors represent fall foliage levels. Yellow is just starting to change, orange is the mid-point, while red is "peak" fall foliage.
Hopefully, we see some changes very soon here in Western New York. Make sure to let us know of leave changes when you see them.
