(WWLP) – If you are thinking about leaf-peeping this weekend, we are starting to see some color change.
Take Route 2 west of Greenfield if you want to stay in western Massachusetts, that may feature the best area for color.
If you are heading to northern New England, Vermont, portions of northern New Hampshire, northern Maine and the Adirondacks of New York State has great color.
The leaf peepers are already out in full force in Franklin County. 22News was in Shelburne Falls Friday, where people were enjoying the changing colors.
We spoke with one woman from Sweden who makes it a point to visit franklin county when she’s in the united states.
“We’ve been here once before,” Camilla Gisslow told 22News. “And we absolutely fell in love with this town so we needed to have a few hours here and enjoy this beautiful town.”
Leaf peeping season typically picks up around Columbus Day which is one week from Monday. We expect to see color change in most western Massachusetts in the next few weeks.

Prepare for widespread frost tonight with clear skies and light winds dropping temperatures into the low to mid-30s. Cover or bring in sensitive plants before you go to bed tonight if you want them to survive the cold.
Saturday morning will start with the coldest temperatures of the season so far. We’ll have almost a cloud-free sky tomorrow with high temperatures near 60.
It’ll be chilly again Saturday night with mainly clear skies, but clouds will be on the increase Sunday.
Sunday we turn mostly cloudy with highs pushing into the upper 60s. We’ll increase shower chances Sunday night, but the wettest weather of the next week comes during the second half of the day on Monday.
