Fall colors are intensifying this weekend in Allegany and adjoining counties

Fall foliage color is at its best in Pennsylvania counties to the south this Columbus Day Weekend, with trees rapidly changing but still being listed as at a midpoint for most of Allegany County, NY.

The maps from I Love NY and the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) show current foliage status for the two states.

Enlarged views of the maps, along with tourism destination tips, are available at https://bit.ly/3SYQY5m for New York and https://bit.ly/3MjZVUQ for Pennsylvania.

Colder daytime temperatures, particularly today, are forecast for the weekend in Allegany County, with partly sunny skies Saturday and Sunday, and a chance of showers on Monday.

Further general forecast information is available at www.weather.gov/buf for the NWS Buffalo forecast region, www.weather.gov/bgm for Steuben and counties to the east, and www.weather.gov/ctp for adjoining Pennsylvania counties.

Local weather forecasts for specific locations are accessible through the Search feature in the upper left corner of most NWS pages, with Hourly Weather Forecasts, which project event timing throughout the day, found on the lower right side of local pages.

Current projections are for colder temperatures for the region mid-month.
