When will peak fall colors arrive? Map fall foliage forecast across US

  • Deciduous plants change color in the fall because there is less daylight, which impacts photosynthesis.

The Farmer’s Almanac, which has been predicting long-range weather outlooks annually since 1818, has released its 2023 fall leaves, peak color forecast.

Days will shrink as the sun continues to rise later and nightfall arrives earlier, until the winter solstice.

Here’s what every “leaf-peeper” needs to know to have the best viewing experience.
