Planning to see fall foliage this year? The above chart is the attempt to predict when autumn’s peak color will happen in Hudson Valley, New York, based on the passed years’ reports from the foliagenetwork.com . The gray columns are the 2017 weekends so you can plan ahead. This is particularly helpful for the New York City residents commuting an hour away and want to book a Hudson Valley hotel in advance. Leaf drop is not included on the chart because if storms do come the leaves will still change around the same time. See my “Fall Foliage” category for other nearby cities.
This year’s Hudson Valley peak time forecast seems to begin and end on two weekends. Either time is a perfect opportunity to plan for a long weekend or any time during the last week of October.
Plan for October 20-29 for the most beautiful fall foliage in Hudson Valley, NY and Catskill Mountains.
