(9/21/13) Weekend travelers will see a little more fall color in Wisconsin -- but still not a lot for this time of year.
Most parts of the Badger State are between zero-and-20 percent of their peak colors. Parts of Burnett and Trempealeau counties have 40-percent of their leaves changing to vivid reds, oranges, and yellows. Fond du Lac, Marinette, and Juneau counties are up to 35-percent of their peaks. Richland County and Stevens Point are at 25-percent. After a couple of hot days, some cool nights are in the forecast -- and they speed up the changing of the colors. As of now, most places in Wisconsin expect peak fall colors sometime during October. Local fall color conditions and recreational listings are available online at Travel Wisconsin-Dot-Com. It's a gloomy day in much of the state, as rain-storms from yesterday are still clearing. Clear and cooler weather is projected for the weekend. At least patchy frost is expected statewide tomorrow night.
