Warm, Wet Weather Now May Affect Foliage Colors In Fall

Local News

All the warm weather we’ve gotten at the end of summer has been nice, but experts now say it could limit the things we love so much about fall.

Taryn Bauerle is a professor in Cornell University’s plant science department and predicts the warm, wet weather in Upstate New York will delay the colors of the fall foliage season and cause them to be less vibrant.

“The goldilocks of fall colors come from a combination of warm sunny days followed by cool nights,” Bauerle said.

New York has had very wet and warm weather leading into the fall season, which Baurle said could delay and lessen the color changes.
