Maine Fall Foliage Report for This Week: September 30th
Let's take a look at the fall foliage report for this week, September 30th to October 7th, for the state of Maine.
This week the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry is reporting most of the State of Maine at peak fall foliage this week. Exceptions for peak foliage include a section of Maine in the northern region West of Fort Kent and North of the Katahdin region, which is past peak foliage season, and areas directly on the coastline of Maine from the border with New Hampshire all the way to east to the border of Canada, which currently has low foliage change. Everywhere else is 70% - 100% at peak.
This is your peak time to check out the color for most of Maine.

This week we are continuing to see peak and near peak fall foliage in the Rocky Mountains, the most northern parts of the midwest, in parts of the Appalachian Mountains and northern parts of New England. There is some partial and patchy spots of foliage that continue to run around the Rockies' most elevated spots, throughout the northern midwest and for a good portion of the northern half of the eastern seaboard of the United States.
It is noted that some of the most elevated areas in the Rockies and the Appalachians as well as the most northern part of Minnesota are already past peak.
As of now, the northern part of the United States is seeing mostly minimal and patchy foliage at this time.
Next week, we'll see peak and past peak areas in all of the Rockies, New York State into New England, the mountain region along the eastern seaboard and the northern mid-west states. Most foliage at that time will be mostly patchy, partial or at near peak with more foliage action happening more consistently in the southern half of the United States
See you next week for another fall foliage report.
