Fall Color Update – September 16, 2019

We continue to see reports of some early season splashes of fall color, however, we are still a week or two away from any major transitions from green forests to forests of gold and red and yellow and orange. We’ve heard predictions of an early fall color season, however, with the warm spell in the forecast we think the color progression will likely look a lot like the fall of 2018.

If your travel is limited to the weekends, there should be some early season color in the Western U.P. along the interior routes this weekend, September 21 – 22, 2019. A good weekend for peak color along the interior routes of the Upper Peninsula is likely to be the weekend of September 28 – 29, 2019, with more peak color coming into play closer to the Lake Superior shoreline for the weekend of October 5 – 6 and the weekend of October 12 – 13, 2019.

Color for Northern Lower Michigan is likely to start peaking along interior routes during the first weekend of October – October 5 – 6, 2-19 – with more color coming into play during the rest of the month of October.
