Still Summer but I got Autumn looking scenery here and there. Pretty insane. Usually in August everything is still deep green. Maybe in Vermont and Maine would see scattered color like this not near the coast.

Nice pics. I need some shots of the two trees I saw on Long Island, it was an odd sight, two trees with orange foliage (30-40%) while everything else nearby was 100% green.

Haven't seen real fall foliage here since 2011, last year was a circus with Sandy and Athena removing entire trees and/or their leaves before they had a chance to change colors.

The trees turning colour early are the ones who are not in 100% health; or could be younger trees. I saw 2 trees too which were yellow already while other ones right beside it the same kind of tree were deep green.

My wife and I traveled through the Chiracahua Mountains about seven or so years ago. Most of the oaks there were of the evergreen variety but the "fall" colors were very evident. Since this was in April, I suspect it was a response to an ongoing drought that was in its fifth year then and hasn't much eased since.

Some trees here have already lost their foliage, and the grass is on its deathbed, all because of the drought.

As I said last autumn, those aren't fall colors. Trees turn yellow prematurely due to stress, most usually due to fungi or drought. Those maple leaves are clearly attacked by tree rust.
Rust (fungus) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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...

Not here. If it was 1 or 2 scattered maybe, but the change is happening everywhere. Deep greens fading to light greens and yellows, oranges and reds are showing up. Very early this year in this area. We might peak at the end of September if this weather keeps up.

I don't think its stress- maybe down in the usa but here certainly not. I think trees turning is a combination of temps and daylight hours. Where I live trees have started to turn and it is definately not stress as there are too many trees.

Heres a few pictures:

You will not have tree change before us.
You don't have anything remotely resembling autumn weather. Next week I will have low to mid single figure mins.
