We are currently in the last couple of weeks of summer here in Western New York. Students and teachers all across the 716 will be back to school soon and the leaves will be changing colors too.

You may already notice that some of the leaves have started to change. I noticed a couple here and there when I was walking around Holiday Valley in Western New York.

So when can we expect the leaves to fully start to change and give us those amazing Red, Yellow, and Orange brilliant colors?

According to the Farmer's Almanac, we will start to see the majority of the leaves start to change color towards the end of September.

According to their prediction, it looks like we will have a solid month of fall foliage and you know there are plenty of places to see amazing colors in the fall across the Empire State.
