Fall Color Update – October 19, 2021

Looks like we get a bonus week or two of fantastic fall color this year in Northern Lower Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. Although the fall color has faded along most routes along the interior of the Upper Peninsula, you can still find some peak color near the shoreline of Lake Superior and Lake Michigan.

In Northern Lower Michigan the fall color was coming along a couple of weeks ago and now has seemed to stall due to the unseasonably warm weather. The Cadillac area which traditionally peaks about a week ago has not even reached peak today, October 19, 2021. You’ll likely see some good peak color coming along this week and weekend.

There is still a lot of green along the routes near Lake Michigan. These routes will not start peaking until next week and you will likely have good peak color along these routes for the Halloween Weekend, October 29 – 31. (And there will be some peak color for the start of November.)

FROM Visit Greater Cadillac --> Weekly Update: October 19th, 2021
Mild temperatures have been a recurring theme so far this fall season and fall color in Michigan is peaking at it's latest in a long, long time! We are no exception. However, the forecast takes a predictable turn heading into the weekend with much cooler weather than we have seen so far. We have a fair amount of color right now and we predict a quick push to peak color viewing in the coming days. Be sure to check out our two new color routes and bundle up before you head out to all of our destinations for fall fun. Halloween is coming up quickly but there is still time for pumpkin patch hunting, cider & donuts! Remember to subscribe to our weekly fall color updates as we head into the peak color season.

FROM Visit Greater Cadillac --> Weekly Update: October 12th, 2021
After another balmy and wet week the colors in our area haven't changed much over the last several days. This week was originally projected as what would be our "peak" but we are just not there yet, which is good news for those of you who have not yet come to explore the Cadillac region! Temperatures are heading back down to a normal range as we head into the weekend which should spur some more color progression. Be sure to check out our two new color routes this year and hit all the destinations for fall fun! With Halloween now just around the corner it is a great time for U-pick pumpkins & gourds for your doorsteps! Subscribe to our weekly fall color updates as we head into the peak color season.

The Fall Color Show in the Cadillac area is coming along. Still some green out there but lots of vivid red and yellow and gold mixed in.

Fall Color Update via Doppler 9&10 Weather Team --> Updated: 10/7/2021 (Updated Weekly)
Peak Color is already here for some areas! This has been a very interesting year with strong pockets of red and orange in a sea of green the last few weeks. But last week’s chilly nights made notable changes for specific areas around Cadillac, Clare, and Grayling. While Cadillac may not be peaking right now, there are large areas within 10 miles of the downtown area that are. That is why we are showing those areas as Peak, as it will come sooner than later... #fallcolorreports #cadillacmichigan #benziecounty #traversecity #petoskey #gaylord #grayling #westernup #marquette #munising #newberry - www.9and10news.com/2021/09/16/fall-color-change-2021/?fbclid=IwAR0YonBAAJd_IlfbxiYVhHIev84q-9jPwd...

October 1 – 3, 2021 – Likely A Peak Color Weekend for interior routes. Early Season to Peak color along the lake shore routes of the Upper Peninsula
October 8 – 10, 2021 – Peak Color Weekend for lake shore routes with past peak conditions coming into play along interior routes.
