NEW YORK (WABC) -- Fall foliage season is here! Here's where to find the best views across New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey, and other parts of the country.

Finding brilliant colors will be trickier this season thanks to the record-breaking drought across the Northeast.

Trees deprived of water become stressed, and experts say we're likely not going to see the same radiant colors as we would in a normal year.

In New York, it's high time for leaf-peeping on Long Island (Nov. 2 - 8). ILoveNY.com is providing weekly updates on where to see the best colors.

Nearly all of Connecticut is bathed in the season's colors as well, but get other there quickly as much of the state is expected to be past peak in just a few days. You can see the latest reports at Connecticut's Department of Energy and Environmental Protection website.

Similarly, it's a great time to get outside in eastern New Jersey. The New Jersey Forest Service is posting updated fall foliage conditions on its Facebook page.

Of course, fall colors can be seen all over the country. One of the best resources is a fall foliage prediction map from Smoky Mountains National Park. You can check color projections for anywhere in the country on a weekly basis through November 21.
