Fall Foliage Updates

It is becoming clear, thanks to all the photos from those in northern PA where foliage colors are peaking, that the 2020 Fall Foliage Season will be the best in several years. We had the optimal conditions of warm days and cold nights, with mainly dry conditions. And going forward, we will continue to have those conditions. The recent rainfall will help extend the foliage season slightly longer.

Higher elevations in central and northern Pennsylvania have reached peak color, while lower elevations in the same region still have some time until peak color. Southeast PA is beginning to report change, especially outside of the Philadelphia Area. Looking to plan a trip to your favorite fall foliage viewing spot soon? See the details below.
