Here is a new fall foliage map as of 9/13/08
Most of the Region has only 5-15 percent of leaf color change which is a patchy coverage however higher elevations in the Adirondack Mountains have about 30 percent leave color change resulting in widespread leaf color change.When about 60 percent  of  the leaves have changed that's when it will be classified as near peak. Peak being 75-100 and past peak being after all the leaves have changed color and have fallen to the ground.

Please stay tuned to the blog for more maps, updates and details and an outlook on what could be some early fall flurries for parts of the Great Lakes.


I would like to announce that Jim (OHweather2) on the forums are teaming up this winter to give everyone the latest and most accurate lake effect snow & winter weather forecast and observations.

I myself live in Amherst,NY (A suburb of Buffalo,NY) and Jim lives in Solon,OH which is a suburb of Cleavland,OH so we will both be reporting on this blog with lake effect snow reports and pictures throughout the winter season.

Please don't forget to report to us with your snow totals using the contact form on the wnylakesnow home page!

Looking forward to 7 months ahead!
