Early Fall Foliage? No, Most Likely Storm-Damaged Limbs
With high temperatures forecast in the nineties, high humidity and an air quality advsory, the Wednesday forecast may have felt more like July than September. But around the state, there have been reports of October-like spottings of fall foliage.
WTIC’s Ray Dunaway asked State Forester Chris Martin about the turning leaves. Martin says the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection also has received such reports. He says their speculation is that the leaves are on individual branches of trees which suffered storm damage – that most of the tree is still green, but the limb which had damage has begun to turn.
