Fall foliage conditions will be ideal in Maine this weekend

October 5, 2018

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Fall colors are in full swing in Maine.

The state’s Fall Foliage Report says there will be peak conditions in northern Maine on Columbus Day weekend, while the rest of the state is seeing 50 to 70 percent color change.

Maine fall foliage spokesperson, Gale Ross, says the colors are arriving in time for the holiday weekend as if “on cue.” Columbus Day weekend is a big weekend for out-of-state leaf peepers, who descend on Maine to get a look at the yellows and oranges in the trees.

The state says all parts of the state are at either peak, high or moderate color change. Coastal and southern Maine typically reach peak colors later in the fall than the northern parts of the state.
