What Happened To The Fall Colors
Did the warm temps have any effect on the way or timing for the fall colors?
It would appear not. However, parts of New York are already seeing near-peak foliage and that makes people like me very happy to see the fall colors.
Believe it or not, high in the Adirondacks near Lake Placid may hit 85% of their color change by the end of this weekend, the highest level in the state according to "I Love NY weekly foliage report.
A little closer to home in Cooperstown and Mohawk, in Herkimer County, will see around 35% peak. Central New York can expect to see around 30% in Utica and 25% in Oswego.
Judging by the estimates of up to 85% of peak by this weekend, if you are looking to take a day trip you would be catching the fall colors in the high country at a perfect time.
