2022 fall foliage maps predict when leaves will peak in Illinois – NBC Chicago https://luxembourgglobe.com/2022-fall-foliage-maps-predict-when-leaves-will-peak-in-illinois-nbc-chicago/ Tue, 27 Sep 2022 02:58:14 +0000 https://luxembourgglobe.com/2022-fall-foliage-maps-predict-when-leaves-will-peak-in-illinois-nbc-chicago/ As fall unfolds, many leaf watchers may be wondering when crisp, warm-toned leaves will make their way to Illinois.

As fall unfolds, many leaf watchers may be wondering when crisp, warm-toned leaves will make their way to Illinois.

Well, several fall foliage maps have emerged to give an estimated glimpse of when the greenery will begin to glow with new golden hues.

According to the state tourist board, peak fall color typically arrives the second week of October in the Chicago area and along the Mississippi River, with central Illinois seeing peak color in the middle of the month. months and the southern part of the state reaching its peak. in the last week of the month.

This year, however, the fall colors may arrive a little later than usual.

Smoky Mountains, a travel service that provides information on lodging and other activities around the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, has a map that shows its estimated arrival date for peak fall colors across the country. , and the picture it paints for the Chicago area is one that points to a later-than-usual peak season.

According to the Smoky Mountains map, Kenosha County in Wisconsin and Lake County in Illinois could potentially peak around their normal hours, peaking in the first or second week of October. .

As for the rest of the state, things seem to be a little delayed this year.

The second week of October could potentially see parts of northern Illinois, including Cook County and most of the area along the Illinois-Wisconsin border, hit a “partial” color change pattern. . Fall colors could also begin to appear in central Illinois during this week, putting it on track to peak later than normal during the month.

In fact, the color spike in the Chicago area may not occur until the week of October 24, according to the map. This “peak” belt through the Midwest will also include northern Indiana, including the five Hoosier State counties in NBC viewing area 5.

By Halloween, the Chicago area could pass its peak, and much of Illinois, including LaSalle, Kendall, Grundy, Will and Kankakee counties, could finally see its peak.

By Nov. 7, most of the state will be past its peak colors, while southern Illinois should be hitting its stride at that point.

While the science of predicting fall leaf color changes is inaccurate, several factors could lead to a later than usual fall peak in the state. This includes a period of drier than normal weather, as well as a warmer than normal start to the fall, which is predicted by the National Weather Service.

The Illinois Fall Colors Report will be updated as the season progresses, and residents are encouraged to check frequently for the latest updates on when the fall colors will be the best. more majestic.

The report also includes information on some of the best places in the state to see fall foliage, including Starved Rock State Park.

Farmer’s Almanac named Pere Marquette State Park in west-central Illinois the eighth best place in the United States to experience fall foliage.

As a “nature lover’s paradise”, the park will offer views of the rolling leaves against a backdrop of wooded ravines and roads along the Illinois River. Explorers can also take advantage of the land’s towering cliffs, which will offer panoramic views of the lush landscape that engulfs the park’s 12-mile trail.

It’s that time of year again – the season for the leafy peepers! Our leaves have started to change and we are already seeing beautiful colors appear in some parts of the region. Many are concerned about the drought conditions we are experiencing and the impact it will have on the foliage this year. So I’m going to give you the good news: there will still be plenty of bright colors to absorb this season. In fact, northern New England is not in severe drought. And southern New England has had some good torrential rains lately, which has certainly helped to reduce the deficit and give our trees a solid drink of H20.

Per NewEngland.com… “Drier years tend to be dominated by red. While yellow and orange pigments are in the leaves all year round, masked by green chlorophyll, red is only produced in fall. The anthocyanins responsible for this are fed by the remaining sugars in the leaves. I can say that I’ve seen this start to play out in southern New England before, with a random patchwork of bright reds appearing here and there on the maples in particular.


NBC10 Boston

Of course, the key to the bright colors of fall are warm, sunny days and cool, cool nights. Tonight will drop into the 30s and 40s across the region and a day of blue skies coupled with highs in the 60s tomorrow will be a great boost for more color to start showing. Typically, peak foliage season runs from late September to early November from north to south, and so far things seem to be on schedule…at least in the north.

a forecast graph shows 63 sunny and windy Saturday plus PM blouds showers 67 Sunday


NBC10 Boston

So if you’re looking to get out there this weekend and catch some color, head north. The far north of the country, especially from the northeastern Kingdom of Vermont to Coos County in New Hampshire, and in the mountains of northwestern Maine, are places where subdued color is already in place!

How realignment is changing college football, in 20 maps https://luxembourgglobe.com/how-realignment-is-changing-college-football-in-20-maps/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 15:11:15 +0000 https://luxembourgglobe.com/how-realignment-is-changing-college-football-in-20-maps/ PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY EMILY SCHERER / GETTY IMAGES In 1896, a group of Midwestern college administrators met in Chicago to set the rules for what was then called the Western Conference, later to be known as the Big Ten.

In 1896, a group of Midwestern college administrators met in Chicago to set the rules for what was then called the Western Conference, later to be known as the Big Ten. They agreed in writing, according to a Chicago Tribune account the next day, “to keep intercollegiate athletic competitions within their own bounds.” One of these boundaries was geographic: for purposes of travel and tradition, schools largely played up the regional rivals that populated their conferences.

It’s hard to imagine, then, how the founders of the nation’s oldest athletics conference would have reacted to recent realignment news that has rocked college sports to its core. Last year, the Southeastern Conference announced it would add Texas and Oklahoma to form a 16-team megaconference. Not to be outdone, the Big Ten announced this summer that it was also expanding to 16 teams by adding UCLA and USC.1 For the first time, a major college athletics league becomes bi-coastal.

UCLA, USC, Texas and Oklahoma rank second, third, fifth and tied for 16e in Division I history in the NCAA national team titles, respectively. Historically, schools like these form the bedrock of conferences, instead of breaking them. Only one of the four has significantly changed conference opponents over the past century.2 Now they all fit into two super-leagues, and the Big Ten may not be finished yet: Commissioner Kevin Warren says he could see expand to 20 teams. The evolution of the college sports map in recent decades has been startling, dismantling any notion of regionality that conferences once conferred.

As recently as the 2000s and early 2010s, college leagues still generally fit into small geographic pockets. Under the old Bowl Championship Series (BCS), for example, there were six major football conferences (the Big Ten, SEC, Pac-12, Big 12, Big East and ACC), most of which were very close-knit – and none more so than the Big Ten. We calculated the distance from each school to the geographic center of all schools in its conference, and each Big Ten team was within 500 miles of the conference center in 2010. Nationwide, no Power Five school n was even 1,000 miles away from his lecture. center.

But the next four years brought a wave of lecture exchanges. From 2011 to 2014, 47 schools in the Football Bowl subdivision changed leagues, making it the busiest four-year period in history for realignment.3 The SEC added Texas A&M and Missouri, and the Big Ten added Nebraska, Rutgers and Maryland, venturing into a new state each time. These moves – and the corresponding dominoes that fell as a result – wiped out a football league (the Big East), creating a Power Five, and it was clear that the classic boundaries of college football were being pushed. However, you could still see decisions made under the auspices of geography if you squinted. (For example, the Big Ten’s new additions were at least in states adjacent to the old conference footprint.) The schools farthest from the Big Ten and the SEC were Rutgers and Texas A&M, which ran through distances of 593 and 560 miles. , from their new conference centers.

Even with their expanded borders from the 2010s, the Big Ten and SEC were still, entering 2021, the most compact of the Power Five leagues. But that changed last summer, when the SEC moved further west by agreeing to add Texas and Oklahoma. In doing so, the league not only increased its footprint, but also snatched schools ranked fourth and fifth in college football’s all-time win rankings. Although total earnings is not a perfect measure,4 the Big 12 is now devoid of classic powerhouses, with West Virginia being its second most successful school at No. 27. In more modern terms, Oklahoma was the only Big 12 school to reach the college football playoffs.

Texas and Oklahoma aren’t totally extravagant cultural or geographic fits in the SEC. They’ll be 576 and 489 miles from their new conference center, up from 425 and 84 miles from their Big 12 foes in 2010. They can also preserve the Red River rivalry, and Texas will resume their rivalry with Texas A&M. Although the new distances are an adjustment, 29 schools (across eight leagues) are farther from their conference centers than any team in the new SEC.

However, how other conferences have responded to the SEC’s additions has dramatically distorted the college sports map. To fill its vacancies, the Big 12 has added Brigham Young, Central Florida, Cincinnati and Houston, and is now expanding from Provo, Utah, to Orlando, Florida. BYU and UCF are 986 and 917 miles behind their conference foes. In response to thisthe American Athletic Conference plundered Conference USA, and Conference USA did what it could to stay intact – so the league now stretches from Miami to Las Cruces, New Mexico.

And the real nail in the coffin of the whole “regional conferences” idea will be the new Big Ten, the first truly national college league. While only Penn State and Minnesota were more than 300 miles from the center of the Big Ten in 2010, now 10 schools in the conference exceed that mark, after taking into account UCLA and USC.5 The distance between Los Angeles and the geographic center of the Big Ten is 1,621 miles.

The recent swelling in average distances between schools and their conference rivals is evident in the overall numbers. In 2010, the average distance of an FBS team to its conference center was 336 miles. In 2021, this average has increased to 365 miles. In four years, the average will be 412 miles.

It is also important to remember that all of these distances are measured as the crow flies, rather than road trips. This is especially important for sports other than football and basketball – and for smaller schools in general – both of which rely more on bus rides than charter flights. (Everyone has a different definition of “driving distance,” but by any definition, BYU seems to be the first school—besides Hawaii, for obvious reasons—to not be able to drive to visit an enemy of the conference.)6 In non-profit sports, the UCLA-USC fit of the Big Ten is deeply odd for many reasons: Both schools play sports the conference doesn’t offer, and they don’t play sports the Big Ten competes in. They could dominate their cold-weather counterparts in some sports, such as softball and baseball, and struggle in others, all while sticking to that grueling travel schedule via bus rides.

All of this means that the days of conferences as we once knew them—small, region-bound groups of similar colleges with shared histories—are pretty much over. And the era of the super-league seems to be taking its place. Of course, the idea of ​​a 20-team national sports league is not unheard of. The four major North American men’s leagues, along with Major League Soccer and most major European soccer leagues, have at least as many clubs. No one thinks twice before the Indianapolis Colts play road games in Las Vegas and East Rutherford, New Jersey in the same season. That’s because the NFL is a financially driven organization that seeks to maximize its market. But that’s the point — more and more each year, college football is starting to look like the NFL. And if they weren’t already, the conference ideals crafted in Chicago in 1896 are a relic of the past.

CORRECTION (Sep 22, 2022 3:51 PM): An earlier version of the 2025 Big 12 map showed the University of Cincinnati to be in Kentucky. It’s in Ohio.

When you first download the app, you’ll see measurements in kilometers instead of miles. So if you’re in the US, you’ll want to change that to miles in the app settings ASAP. That is, unless you like using the metric system.

As long as you allow the app’s location when it’s first set up, it will automatically download an offline map of your area. With the handy app toggle in the top right corner, you can easily see if you’re online or offline when using the app.

Because this application contains information from tons of users, it is very detailed. Individual street names appear even if they are small streets, water is blue, parks are green, and important landmarks are noted, such as gas stations, pharmacies, grocery stores, and restaurants . You can also add a Terrain or Subway layer above the traditional map.

Stronger winds are expected to arrive in the area on Saturday, which could kick up embers and create spot fires despite forecast rains.

FORESTHILL, Calif. – The Placer County Sheriff’s Office released a Damage Inspection Report (DINS) for structures damaged by the Mosquito Fire Friday night.

The report highlights the results of the inspection of every structure within the perimeter of the fire on the Placer County side.

The wildfire is burning in El Dorado and Placer counties and has grown to nearly 70,000 acres, officials said Friday morning. Containment of the blaze is still at 20%.

Officials say stronger winds are expected to arrive in the area on Saturday, which could kick up embers and create spot fires despite forecast rains.

No new warnings or evacuation orders were issued. Georgetown has been downgraded from an evacuation order to an evacuation warning and residents can repopulate.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Pacific Gas & Electric said unspecified “electrical activity” occurred shortly after the fire was reported.

Flames from the Mosquito Fire jumped the American River, burning structures in Volcanoville and closing in on Foresthill and Georgetown.

FORESTHILL, Calif. – The fast-moving Mosquito Fire in the Sierra Nevada foothills continues to grow and threaten more than 5,000 homes, while blanketing the region in smoke.

Although lower temperatures and higher humidity kept the fire from growing quickly, erratic winds prevented firefighters from getting ahead of the flames.

“We’ve gotten some respite with some of the weather we’ve had, but the fuel conditions are still pretty volatile right now,” Ernie Villa, fire management officer for the U.S. Forest Service, said Saturday.

Cal Fire announced Saturday that the fire has burned 37,326 acres and is 0% contained. Officials say more than 11,000 people were evacuated from the area on Saturday evening.

The flames are moving north and northeast as winds increase in speed and change direction. Officials say they are now opening lines of control that were previously used in other fires to try to stop the fire from spreading.

PHOTOS: Scenes from the Mosquito Fire

David Hance slept on the porch of his mother’s Foresthill mobile home when he awoke to glowing skies early Wednesday morning and was told to evacuate.

“It was actually terrifying, because they’re like, ‘Oh yeah, it’s getting closer,'” he said. “It was like a sunset in the middle of the night.”

Hance left behind most of his electronics, all of his clothes and family photos and fled to Auburn, where he was reunited with his mother, Linda Hance, who said the biggest stress was wondering: “Is my house still there?

The Mosquito Fire surpassed the Fairview Fire in size and became California’s largest blaze on Friday.

The cause of the Mosquito Fire remained under investigation. Pacific Gas & Electric said unspecified “electrical activity” occurred shortly after the fire was reported on Tuesday.

El Dorado County Sheriff John D’Agostini issued a local emergency due to the fire and a public health emergency was issued for the area due to the smoke.

The fire will continue to threaten communities, power lines, critical infrastructure, endangered species and watersheds, Cal Fire officials said Saturday.

Evacuations are in effect in the Placer County and El Dorado County areas for the Mosquito Fire that started Tuesday afternoon near the Oxbow Reservoir.

PLACER COUNTY, Calif. – The Mosquito Fire in Placer County burned about 4,223 acres Wednesday without containment, according to Cal Fire.

Evacuations are in effect for areas of Placer County and El Dorado County. All areas previously under evacuation warnings are now under mandatory evacuations, including Foresthill, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office evacuation map.

Cal Fire advises people who live near fire to be ready to evacuate if a warning or an order is issued.

The fire started Tuesday near Oxbow Reservoir in the Tahoe National Forest.

Cal Fire said high temperatures today, along with low humidity and erratic winds will provide “extreme burning conditions” and the potential for spot fires.

Matt Langstaff, who has lived in Foresthill for 25 years, told ABC10 he had already packed his car with clothes, photographs and documents. He said he was worried as there is only one way in and out of Foresthill.

“We had a few [of] relatives a couple [of] years ago. They came from the other side here but it’s pretty close. It started right across from where I live in the canyon, then at night it looks really close and goes up the hill, so it’s scary,” Langstaff said.

Cal Fire initially said the Mosquito Fire spread to El Dorado County, but additional mapping Wednesday morning shows the fire did not cross into El Dorado County.

The crews face steep and inaccessible terrain as they attempt to bring the fire under control. Cal Fire said there was a lot of smoke in the area near the fire. The Placer County Air Pollution Control District issued an air quality advisory through Friday. Find a Purple Air air quality map HERE.

Forest fire preparations

According to Cal Fire, the 2021 fire season started earlier than previous years, but also ended earlier. In January 2021, just under 1,200 acres burned due to nearly 300 wildfires. The fires resumed in the summer when the Dixie Fire burned in five northern California counties – Butte, Plumas, Shasta, Lassen and Tehama. The Dixie Fire started on July 13 and was not brought under control until October 25, burning nearly a million acres. It has since become the second largest wildfire in state history and the largest non-complex fire.

Overall, 2.5 million acres were burned in 2021 from 8,835 wildfires. Over 3,600 structures were destroyed and 3 people were killed.

If you live in an area prone to wildfires, Cal Fire suggests creating a defensible space around your home. A defensible space is an area around a building in which vegetation and other debris are completely clear. At least 100 feet is recommended.

The Department of Homeland Security suggests putting together an emergency kit of important documents, N95 respirator masks, and supplies to take with you if you have to leave at any time. The agency also suggests signing up for local alert system notifications and learning the best about your community’s evacuation plans to prepare you and your family in the event of a wildfire.

Some counties use Nixle Alerts to notify residents of severe weather, wildfires, and other news. To sign up, visit www.nixle.com or text your postcode to 888777 to start receiving alerts.
