Fall foliage could disappoint

Those visiting New England to see the region's world famous fall foliage might be in for a letdown this season thanks to some slightly unusual weather on the east coast.

Meteorologists say warm air might limit the colors this year. That doesn't mean the colors won't be good. There's still time for temperatures to cool in the next two weeks or so, they say.

Fall foliage tours are wildly popular in New England. Even some cruise lines get into the act with a short fall season with several stops in Maine and Canada.

Here in Oklahoma fall foliage is best viewed on the Talimena National Scenic Byway or in the Arbuckle Mountain area. Oklahoma's fall foliage is usually peaking by late October. We typically have an annoyingly brief fall in Oklahoma but the foliage doesn't disappoint.

Here's a list of fall foliage themed events around the state.
