Greensboro, NC -- The cooler air that started off the week has helped some of the leaves begin to change in more areas. The color has become a little more widespread across the Appalachian Mountain chain in western Virginia, West Virginia and western Maryland.

There still hasn't been many reports of much color change in western North Carolina aside for some of the higher elevations.

I would expect that the mountains in eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina will soon cross into the low-medium range soon.

As the daylight continues to lessen and with cooler temperatures on the way over the next week an increase in color coverage and intensity is inevitable.

The typical fall color peak in the mountains is during late September, but due to a warmer than average summer the peak may be slightly delayed.  Typical peak color in the Piedmont Triad is not until the end of October.

WFMY would love to see pictures and/or videos of the fall color in your area or from a recent trip. You can submit your fall color pictures to myphotos@wfmy.com or you can post them to the WFMY News 2 facebook page.

Pictures, videos and fall color reports can also be sent to Meteorologist Grant Gilmore by way of facebook, twitter or email. Grant will be featuring the latest fall color reports each Friday during the 5pm and 6pm newscasts.
