Foliage Report – September 21, 2016
Today is the last full day of summer, and tomorrow, September 22nd fall starts! According to the latest Foliage Report from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry there is very low, less than 10 per cent color change in Northern Maine and throughout the State.
Gail Ross, Maine's Fall Foliage spokesperson said
Mother Nature’s not missing a beat as autumn arrives in Maine with weekend temperatures more on the seasonal side to start the progression of color throughout the state. Colors will start moving along at a faster pace with the dip in the daytime and evening temperatures. It’s going to be a grab your sweaters and light jackets weekend, as you head out to the fairs and apple orchards throughout Maine
Typically Northern Maine reaches peak conditions the last week of September into the first week of October. Coastal Maine typically reaches peak conditions mid to late October.
