AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The summer-like weather this month in Maine is delaying the fall colors.

The state’s foliage report shows that the entire state remains green with little color. Last year, northern Maine was showing color by the middle of September. The year before that, leaves were turning across the entire state.

Gale Ross, fall foliage coordinator for Maine, said sunny days followed by cool but not freezing temperatures are needed to get the party started when it comes to colorful red, yellow and orange hues.

She says that hasn’t happened yet because of warm temperatures.
