A constantly changing situation

nys foliage map 2013-10-03Noted: This part of the state is approaching peak foliage season. From I Love NY's extensive weekly foliage report, updated Wednesday:

In the Capital-Saratoga region, Fulton County observers in Northville and Benson expect 75-90 percent color change by the weekend with near peak to peak conditions and average to bright fall colors of red, orange and yellow. In Rensselaer County, expect 40-50 percent color change with even more color showing in the eastern and northern parts of the county (50-65 percent). Look for various shades of bright orange, yellow, and red. Saratoga County foliage spotters based in Saratoga Springs expect midpoint of change with 40 percent color transition and bright, vibrant yellows, oranges and reds visible throughout much of the area, along with subtle shades of gold mixed in. In Albany County, it will be midpoint of change in the Thacher Park area of the Helderbergs. Bright shades of yellow and red predominate.

And the Adirondacks and Catskills are at peak or soon past it.
