The Morning Sentinel had the following fall color prediction for Maine:
Mother Nature has been cooperating, setting up Maine for the best leaf peeping in years after several seasons of mediocre color displays because of bad weather, according to Gale Ross, Maine foliage spokeswoman.
“We should have a better-than-average foliage season. It will be the first year in quite some time we’ve had nearly normal conditions,” Ross said. “The warm days and cool nights will help the leaves along over the next few weeks.”
The first color showcase should peak in northern Maine toward the last week in September, followed by western, southern and central regions during the week of the Columbus Day weekend and into the following week. The coast is the last region to peak, Ross said.
