The recent cooler weather has really helped the fall color increase all across the Northeast. It was even cold enough on Thursday for snow to fall in some of the higher elevations of the White Mountains! The latest foliage reports show that color is nearing peak or peaking now and over the next several days in the White Mountains and far Northern New England. Elsewhere, color has been gradually increasing, and moderate color is being observed in New Hampshire's Monadnock and Lakes Region. Some spots in the Monadnock Region have seen up to 75% color change! In the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, low to moderate color is presently being observed. We haven't seen too many significant wind events, so very few leaves have been stripped from the trees so far.
