AccuWeather’s Fall 2021 Foliage Forecast
According to AccuWeather the Northeast and Appalachians are expecting a more vibrant fall foliage season this year than last, and it may arrive one or two weeks later than usual as a result of milder weather.
New York, Pennsylvania, and the Ohio Valley can expect vibrant colors that may have less red in them as a result of the heavy recent rainfall from Ida.
Great Lakes and Northern Midwest can expect vibrant colors from favorable weather earlier in the summer. In those areas of the Midwest that experienced drought conditions over the summer, colors will not be as vibrant and the season shorter.
In the Rockies those areas affected by the monsoon—southern Rockies across New Mexico and Colorado will see vibrant colors. The northern Rockies will be less vibrant and may experience early leaf drop due to drier weather.
West Coast colors will be less vibrant due to drier weather and wildfires with pockets of color in areas like the northern Cascades.
