UNDATED (WSAU) Strong winds have shortened Wisconsin’s fall color season. There’s still time to enjoy the majestic red, yellow, and green trees – but today might be one of your last opportunities.
Sunny and clear weather is in the forecast through this evening. Showers and thunderstorms are predicted for Saturday and Sunday morning. And they’ll knock down many of the remaining leaves.
The good news is that you don’t have to travel far to see some bright fall colors today. 35 counties are at 100-percent of their peaks, and they’re sprinkled all over the Badger State. Also, Lafayette, Iowa, and Jefferson counties still report colors at 60-to-70-percent of their peaks. But almost half of Wisconsin counties are past their peaks – including a few in the south which normally don’t peak until late October.
Travel Wisconsin-Dot-Com has a map which shows the color conditions in every county, plus lists of fall festival and other fun spots.
