We’ve been getting a lot of rain lately, which we need to make up for our dry summer, but it can dim the colors of autumn leaves. For the most spectacular color displays, the best weather conditions are a succession of warm, sunny days, according to “Science of Fall Colors” from the US Forest Service. Cool but not freezing nights help, too.
Leaves in the Chautauqua-Allegheny Region are changing a bit earlier than leaves in the Greater Niagara Region, according to the most recent report.
New reports come out every Wednesday.
