Greg’s Foliage Report: Oct. 2

foliage b0b98b0461ca58251 Gregs Foliage Report: Oct. 2
For this week ,conditions are still being noted as patchy color in most of the state, including the southern coast.

In the northwest corner higher elevation areas, such as Norfolk and Cornwall, the conditions are being noted as near peak, but some of the lower elevations the color is only patchy, but sometimes near peak.

The northeast hills are now becoming more colorful. More color is appearing with every passing day, especially north of Tolland. Some areas are near peak, but again it depends on elevation!

In driving around northern New Haven County, in the towns of Bethany and Hamden, I have continued to notice a mixture of conditions. Some trees are green, a few were totally turned (peak color) and a few had a decent leaf drop. So, variable conditions are continuing this week.

The warmer temperatures this week and into early next week might slow down the leaf change. Overnight temps are expected to remain above 50 degrees with no frost or freeze conditions in the next 10 days, which would typically help induce faster color change. The next foliage report will be on Saturday, Oct. 5.

The map is a collaborative effort with Meteorologist Quincy Vagell.
