Where to find the best leaf-peeping this weekend in WNY

After nearly two weeks of bonus summer weather, it finally feels a little more like fall.

Leaves are "just changing" across most of Western New York, according to the I Love New York Fall Foliage map.

And it's looking a lot more like fall in some spots of the Southern Tier.

Allegany State Park is one of those spots.

Observers there forecast about 35 percent of the trees changing colors this weekend "with touches of yellow and red leaves of average brilliance," according to the foliage report.

In other spots around the Southern Tier, like Little Valley and Chautauqua, between 10 and 25 percent of the leaves are expected to be change from green to gold, orange or crimson.

Mostly green leaves remain in Buffalo with some spots in early to midpoint stages of leaf change throughout the rest of Western New York, the report stated.
