Week 2 - Fall Foliage Report: Warmer Temps Slowed Foliage Transition

Above-average temperatures last week slowed the foliage transition throughout the Commonwealth, according to the latest Fall Foliage Report from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources
Foresters in northern and southwestern Pennsylvania are reporting localized defoliations of some maples, cherries, and oaks due to heavy wind, rain, and fungi.
Most foliage in southern Pennsylvania is unchanged from last week, but most of the state’s forests are showing signs of the season.
Northeastern counties continue to boast the best color in the state, however substantial foliage progress has been noted from Mercer eastward through Clearfield counties.
Long-range weather forecasts call for a considerable cooldown in roughly one week, which should accelerate the foliar transition throughout the majority of Pennsylvania.
With most of the state’s forests still various shades of green, it is clear the best of fall foliage season is yet to come!
