Fall foliage at peak to past peak across most of the area again

While many of the highest elevations, including the Adirondacks and Catskills, have already seen colors change and leaves fall, many other central New York areas have near peak conditions for this weekend . According to the latest fall foliage report, widespread peak colors are again being reported across just about all of central New York for the second weekend. The best and brightest colors, alongside the largest color changes will be found across the Finger Lakes and many immediate local areas. Colors continue to lag behind for the counties alongside Lake Ontario. According to this website, some Syracuse leaf watchers are seeing past peak conditions due to some leaves being knocked down. I believe that local central New York viewing may vary from place to place in Onondaga county with many areas still near peak conditions.

We are happy to pass along the reports of leaf color changes across our area and all of New York. To read the entire fall foliage report from the I Love NY website, click here.
