This is my end of March forecast for New England
In looking over the Climate Prediction maps at NOAA, for June through December, I’m seeing above average temps throughout New England and average rainfall predicted.
As of right now, (end of March) the summer will be a bit warmer but we should not be in drought conditions through the fall. It also looks like the temperatures will be slow to drop off. If this maintains as an accurate state of our weather, then I could see us being a week late on the colors. (Instead of 20 Sept under perfect conditions, more like 25 Sept for the far north areas)
Most of this will depend on what we ACTUALLY receive in the way of weather. As this is only March, I have a 20% confidence factor in this forecast. Check with me in November when I’ll have a 100% confidence in my forecast… For some reason you’re snickering at me…
Temperatures from August through December look like this.
For precipitation, all the maps for New England look like this.
Comment to win contest
The comment to win contest will begin here with this article. The next one will fall in mid-May and will follow at the middle of each month. (Image from my calendar)
The way this works is you leave a comment on this article (this one is the only that counts for April as it’s the one I count). You can tell me something about a New England autumn that you love or just say a really big hi!!!
About a week later I will count up the comments and assign each a number and then I will randomly pick a number. The person who wins for April will receive from my dwindling supply of 2016, fall calendars. (Only a couple left)
Remember please use an email address that you check because that is normally the only way I have to contact you. If you also use your name in the comment then the following week I will announce the name of the winner and wait for them to contact me.
If they don’t contact me, then I have no way to send them something. In May I’ll be looking to give–a-way a mug or a NH fall foliage ball cap or some Vermont fall foliage postcards and bumper stickers…
At the end of the year (November 2016) I hope to be able to pick from all the winners in 2016 and I will send one of them a 16×20 canvas gallery wrap of one of my fall foliage scenes… So it will pay to play this summer!
I only allow one person to be a winner in each calendar year (excluding the November grand prize winner) so If you won in 2015 you can still play in 2016 and you will be eligible for the 2016 grand prize. Each year we start over clean.

I started with Yankee Magazine as their first blogger on everything fall foliage. Now I blog on my own blog on my favorite subject, telling leaf peepers where the fall foliage is showing up in New England and helping them (to some extent) plan their fall foliage vacations.
