State prepares weekly foliage reports
Each Wednesday through the fall season, New York State issues a “Color Report” with reports from observers on expected color conditions for the coming weekend. For instance, this coming weekend spotters expect “peak colors” throughout the Hudson Valley. Columbia County spotters in Hudson expect 90 percent color change and bright shades of yellow, orange and red. Dutchess County will be at peak with 80 percent change and bright, vivid shades of gold, orange and yellow.
There will be more color near the Taconic Parkway but less near the Hudson River. Spotters at Bear Mountain forecast peak colors to hold on through the weekend with 90 percent change and bright red, orange and yellow leaves.
