Fall Foliage Report - Oct. 14, 2009

Don't let a wet forecast keep you from seeing Virginia's fall colors! They continue to reveal themselves across the state. In Southwest Virginia, colors are approaching peak or are at peak in the higher elevations. In the New River Valley, approximately one-quarter to one-third of the trees have color. In the Allegheny Mountains, colors are at peak in western Highland County and approaching peak in the eastern part of the county. In the Shenandoah Valley, the fall color change is underway. Fall colors continue unfolding in the Piedmont and Coastal Plain. The Piedmont is expected to peak in late October and the Coastal Plain is expected to peak in early to mid-November.
