This week, New York's Fall Foliage Report says, "In Greene County, spotters reporting from Catskill expect peak conditions to continue through the weekend. Look for 100 percent color change and brilliant colors of red, yellow, orange and burgundy. County foliage spotters reporting from above 2,500 feet note that the trees at this elevation will hold on to peak through the weekend, with very bright red, yellow and green leaves.... In Kingston, spotters predict up to 55 percent color change and a great variety of bright, brilliant orange, yellow and red leaves, along with some remaining green. The pace of foliage change picked up over the past two weeks in Delaware County. Look for just-past-peak leaves this weekend, with nearly complete color change and muted shades of yellow, orange and red, along with many bare trees. In Ulster County, spotters at Belleayre Mountain report that foliage is now past-peak."
