Fall is near peak!

That's right it's only the 3rd day of October and about 35% of the leaves have changed colors already and each day this increases 5%-10%. By around October 15th-17th Sussex county NJ will be in peak color and just a week after the trees should lose most of their leaves making it a very early fall. Temperature across Sussex are now in the 50's for average highs and upper 30's to low 40's for lows which is the average for the first week of November let alone October! This cold is sure to make those leaves change fast but the color may not be as bright and spectacular as previous years due to the cooler weather.
