Looks like another 'miss' this year :(

Postby bobbav » Wed Sep 28, 2016 10:50 am

Hi Everyone,

So, I will be at The Arlington Inn on October 3-4, and up until this morning, the weather showed sunny. It appears that's not the case now :(

Also, it appears that due to the warmer-than-usual weather, there may be minimal color in that region.

Thoughts? Has anyone seen color in the Arlington/Manchester/Weston area yet?

There is little color in the valleys so I wouldn't expect to see much in Arlington...but just head up in elevation and you should see some color. Weston is a good bet. Take the Kelly Stand Road from Arlington to Stratton.
Weather forecast isn't great for this coming weekend but its not supposed to be a washout either.
Hope you have fun regardless!

Hi Bob,
The weather forecast often changes and with 5 or 6 days away, I wouldn't worry too much at this point. I agree with bm. The higher elevations would be your best bet. Please keep us updated on your findings. Have a wonderful time!
Carol

Bob: take a ride on Kelly Stand Road and stop at Grout Pond while you are in Arlington. You will really enjoy it. The weather will get better, still too early to lose faith. Have a safe trip up from CT.
