If you’re a Florida resident who longs to plan a trip to see the beautiful change of seasons in the north as the leaves turn to bright orange and rusty browns, you may find yourself disappointed with this year Lack of autumn leaves.
According to Emmy Award winner Ginger Zee, chief meteorologist for ABC’s “Good Morning America,” there appears to be a lack of fall colors in the foliage this year due to an unusually warm fall and heavy rainfall during the summer months.
In an Instagram post she shared Thursday morning, she posted a side-by-side photo collage of the same tree, taken in Metuchen, New Jersey, in October 2020 and October this year.
She wrote, “The warmest start of meteorological fall for many from North Dakota to Maine … but also a super wet summer with mild nights. Seems to have an influence on the autumn colors 🍂 ”

In addition to Zee, hundreds of Northeastern and New England residents have also noticed this sharp difference between this year’s fall foliage compared to last year.
Michigan-based media company MLive published an entire article comparing the same trees today and from that time last year. Click here to see it.
