DCNR’s 5th Fall Foliage Report: Weather Conditions Lengthening Peak Fall Color

On October 28, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources issued its
fifth Fall Foliage Report that gives a preview of next week’s leaf viewing.  

Alternating periods of cool to abnormally warm weather have slowed the stages of fall color transition, leading to an unexpected (but welcome) lengthening of peak conditions throughout a large part of the Commonwealth.

Pennsylvania’s southern Appalachians are currently awash with beautiful fall color. Excellent fall scenery persists in much of the state’s western half, while southeastern areas are just beginning to shine. 

To plan your fall foliage traveling, visit DCNR’s Prime Locations For Viewing Fall Foliage in PA interactive map and the Fall Foliage VisitPA website.
