We're in the midst of fall, and if you're anything like me, you appreciate the fall colors here in the Midwest.
If you're planning a trip to check out the fall colors, central Wisconsin is a good area to check out a long with a few areas in northern Wisconsin. Currently, most of northern Wisconsin is at or a bit past peak colors. Central Wisconsin features about 50-75% percent of peak colors, while the southern portion of the state is at about 25-50%.
For northern Illinois we're noticing patchy colors and will most likely reach peak colors in mid to late October. And if you're running late, southern Illinois on average reaches peak colors in the beginning to middle of November.
You've still got time if you are planning a trip to check out the colors! The weather this weekend will be warmer in the 70's. We'll want to watch for showers and storms overnight Saturday into Sunday. A few showers and storms possible Sunday afternoon.
