Vermont foliage prediction

A prediction of Vermont foliage for Oct. 12-14. 

Leaves change color based on a variety of factors including light level, temperature, soil conditions and more. In Vermont, the color starts in northern regions and at higher elevations, progressing southward and downward into the valleys.

Essex could start to see peak colors as early as Tuesday, based on data gathered last season by the Vermont Center for Geographic Information. Check out VCGI's interactive foliage forecaster map to see an estimation of foliage progression near you.
