Re: Early fall colour around Mt. Snow

Reggie, 2009 was actually a very good year but only if you came up for the last week in September 22nd to 30th, that's when most of NEK and Killington and even 1-89 and 1-91 were at peak, but that was when we had 'normal' Falls, with many low temps in the 30's--Because of Global Warming, last few ye...

Where Are The 30's Temperatures??

Sept Outlook shows no low temps in the 30's for September for Montpelier or even Killington--This is unusual--2012, considered a great Fall(best colors ever in Killington), had 10 mornings in the 30's--2014, another great fall, had 8 mornings in the 30's---However, 2010 was a good Fall, and had just...

Re: Cool September This Year Could Mean Earlier Fall

Looks like they're amending the original lower temps forecast to a higher bias--So, probably still a later Fall than 2008 thru 2014 period, when NEK was at peak Oct 23rd or so, and more along the later Falls lines of 2016 thru 2018, but still earlier than last year's late Fall yikes

Re: Route 114

Route 114 could be our favorite road in Vermont, some years the color has just been amazing, never any traffic, and some of the best Fall Colors in the entire world--We still can't believe what we saw back in 2003, a bright cloudy day that brought out extraordinary color there, 2012 and 2014--bright...

Re: What Experts Are Saying About the 2019 Foliage Season in New England: boston.com

'longer season and more vibrant' and 'earlier' than last year--can't complain about that! As I said, cooler more normal night temps forecast for this month and early October are probably a big factor, Global Warming is giving Vermont a break this year

Cool September This Year Could Mean Earlier Fall

September this year is forecast to be much cooler this year than the last three years or so, which resulted in later Fall colors-- Last three years in Killington there were 7 to 10 nights in the 40's but this year almost every night this month may be in the 40's(in other words more normal)and we all...

Re: Eight Years Ago This Week: Hurrican Irene Devastates VT and New England

Not only that, but it was worst Fall in Vermont history in 2011 as far as colors go, the extreme rainstorms not only caused massive flooding damage, Irene also created black mold in the trees and prevented them from turning color, we drove everywhere saw almost no color that year, I swear that in Ki...

Re: Fall foliage on Sep 20th weekend

You're about a week early at least--Global Warming has made the Fall Colors later the last few years, we used to be able to see incredible color in the Northeast Kingdom by Sept 22, but constantly warmer Septembers have pushed things back
