September 18th, 2019early fall foliage map

The progression of fall color is fully underway. We are getting reports of early color all over the state, particularly in higher elevation areas. Our forum members are reporting that the color seems about 5 days ahead of schedule. The map here is showing a pretty accurate rendition of how things are.

All signs point to a very colorful season according to the Vermont Department of Tourism…
"Fall foliage is underway, and all factors are in place for another fabulous season to emerge. It’s been a strong growing season, and as the days shorten, we look forward to the onset of fall weather with bright, sunny days and cold nights to bring the next layer of color and vibrancy to our world-famous autumn landscape.

Vermont is still in the early phase of the foliage season, characterized by the gradual fade of green and the emergence of yellows and oranges. There is a touch of red scattered among the earliest changing trees.

Best Bets for Color This Week: Head for the Northeast Kingdom. Lakes Willoughby and Seymour and the peaks of Mount Pisgah and Mount Hor will start to pop with color as we head into the weekend."
