Relating to Robert Leffler, a retired nationwide Weather provider climatologist, now is typical for peak foliage within these areas, whose elevations are above 3, 000 foot.
Contrary to popular belief, Canaan Valley recorded its very first frost entirely straight back on September 15 once the mercury tumbled to 33 levels. The average first freeze there's September 1, Leffler says.
The D.C. location still has 2-3 weeks before fall shade truly starts to pop. On average, maximum color hits our western suburbs around Halloween, and weekly after Halloween along and east of I-95.
We’ll help keep you posted with autumn foliage changes each week.
