Leaves are beginning to change color in WNY; when will we see peak color?

Leaves are beginning to change color in Western New York. I made this short (9-second) video last year of elm leaves floating to the ground. Video by Connie Oswald Stofko

The leaves on the elm tree in front of my house are turning yellow and, in a week or so, will be floating from the branches, just like the leaves in the video above.

If you want to enjoy the wonderful colors of autumn, keep track with the fall foliage report from the I Love NY website.

The reports signal when leaf color will be just changing, at the midpoint, at near peak, at peak and past peak.

Volunteer field observers send in their findings and reports are updated every Wednesday afternoon. The report shows expected color conditions for the coming weekend.

Western New York is divided into two areas: the Greater Niagara Region and the Chautatuqua-Allegany Region.
