The fall foliage season is winding down in some areas, but you can still see some amazing color in CNY. The place to do it is the Mohawk Valley this weekend, especially east of Utica, where peak color will be developing. The Eastern Adirondacks and Catskills will also see peak color this weekend in the lower elevations.
Color is also coming out west of Utica, especially near the Syracuse and Albany area, where leaves will be approaching peak by mid to late October.
Leaves are past peak in the Western Adirondacks and High peaks region, along with the highest elevations north and south of the Mohawk Valley.
Here's a look at the fall foliage map:
This discussion will be updated every Thursday morning until the season ends.
As always, we continue to look forward to your reports on the leaf change in your backyard. Here's what we need:

e) Past peak (leaves coming down quickly)
3) Pictures (if you have them)
