Colder than average weather in the past week has everyone seeing at least a little bit of color heading into this weekend.
I had the privilege of taking a midweek trip to the Adirondacks this week to hike Giant Mountain and Rocky Peak Ridge with fellow Spectrum News meteorologist Jack Durkin. I can confirm that the High Peaks region is seeing 50-60 percent change.
With great weather expected this weekend I'm hoping to check out the Tupper Lake region which will be seeing near peak color.
The Catskills are looking a little more colorful compared to last week, but not quite at the midpoint.
Areas around the Capital Region and mid Hudson Valley are beginning to show a little color as well, especially this set of trees at SUNY Albany.
Farther south, areas in Sullivan county are beginning to pop as well.
Out in Central New York and the Finger Lakes region hints of color are just beginning to show. Taughannock Falls is beginning to show some yellow and will be bursting with color by mid October.
Swinging over to New England, many areas especially in the higher terrain are seeing 50-70 percent color change.
If you're taking a drive through Vermont this weekend you can expect scenes like this!
Once again the weather looks to fully cooperate for all your hiking, camping, and scenic driving plans. In fact for some, it'll be shorts and t-shirt weather!
