The fall weather can be slightly unpredictable here in New York State. As the cold air moves in across the Great Lakes, anything can happen and a forecast can change in a minute! Many of us who live in Western New York remember the "October Surprise" storm that piled up heavy, wet snow in mid-October.

The leaves are changing and the predictions are out. The Farmer's Almanac is calling for more snow than usual this fall and the chance for more frequent storms.

But what about the big events coming up? Everyone in Western New York has walked through the snow and cold and wind from house to house with our costumes on trick-or-treating.

However, this year the early and long-range forecast is calling for seasonable temps and partial sun!

This weekend, there are many who will hit the road to see the colors of fall and the changing leaves. New York State has some of the best places and views for "leaf peeping". The massive amount of maple trees and the variety of other hardwoods scattered on the hillsides make for a coloring book for Mother Nature!

The fall is exciting and the leaves are amazing! However, New York State does NOT allow you to burn leaves at any time of the year. Pile them up and use them for mulch or compost or let the town pick them up. But burning is not allowed.
