This is how it looked here yesterday at 60N:








Absolutely no signs of fall foliage, so I doubt seriously that it the fall is coming to CT at 45N earlier than here...

Nice photos. The "inkling" of fall weather is starting here in Northern California.

Here we have a recent surge of hot weather which will delay it some. Some trees are lightening though.

That makes sense, pretty much all of the trees I've seen with some color are small/medium-sized sidewalk/parking lot trees, some of them were visibly sick.

Partially the same here. The birches are epecially prone to rust attacks, but they are all roadside trees. So maybe the pollution from the cars makes the trees weaker and are easily attacked. Parking lot trees can have roots beneath the pavement, and can't absorb as much moisture, I think. Especially if it's have been dry for a longer period.

The trees have made a fast turn overnight here. Was driving down the road and quite a few trees have now started to turn colour. I haven't been out really since Saturday and there is a noticeable difference, some of the trees are now fully turned.

Couldn't get any pics because my iphone charger is broke.

It's looking more like Fall out here with yellows, oranges and reds showing up everywhere you look. Still lots of greens but the change is apparently happening. 4 weeks early.

Many trees use to change color from mid-August. That has nothing to do with being the first signs of Autumn/fall wich will occur in more than one and half month, but rather with the summer drought, and parasites.
