Fall Foliage Report - Oct. 8

For the week of October 8, patchy color changes continue throughout the state. In southwest Virginia, color change is very evident in the higher elevations, particularly in the Alleghany Highlands. Small red and yellow patches of color change are now visible. Foliage viewing is underway and approximately 10-15% of trees have changed color. At this time, peak colors are expected in the mountains during mid to late October; the Piedmont and Coastal Plain are expected to peak between late October and mid-November.

A cigarette, campfire or cooking equipment can destroy the scenic wonders of Virginia.
