Warm fall forecast for Upstate NY; colors could arrive late

Upstate New York’s warm summer is expected to blend into a warm fall, according to a pair of recent long-range forecasts.

Accuweather and the National Weather Service agree that September, October and November are likely to be warmer than normal. “When the fall season gets underway, warm weather will continue across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic,” Accuweather said.

The weather service’s Climate Prediction Center agrees, giving the Northeast 50 to 60% odds of a warm fall. That’s a stronger forecast that it first appears, because there’s a presumption that the odds of a normal fall are 33%. That means the odds of a cooler-than-normal fall is only about one-in-four.
