Enjoy Maine at Peak Foliage This Weekend!
We hope you are enjoying an incredible October in Maine. This is the warmest October on record and the foliage has been fantastic. But this weekend is really IT. Northern Maine is past peek, but for the rest of us, it's now or never, so get out there and enjoy the perfect weather and beautiful Mother Earth!
"While the upcoming weather forecast calls for warm weather, the recent cooler weather will help push the remaining zones to peak or near-peak conditions by this weekend. Leaf peepers will still find spotty green in a lot of the deciduous trees along the immediate coast where we were fortunate enough to escape the recent frost, but don’t wait, the weather can change dramatically between now and October 31," according to Gale Ross, fall foliage spokesperson.
"The Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry’s final foliage report shows past peak conditions in zones 6 and 7. Central and coastal Maine (zones 1, 2 and 3) are at 70 to 100 percent color change. Moderate to high leaf drop is also reported throughout the state."
