Greensboro, NC -- As the middle of October arrives so does the peak of the fall color across most of western North Carolina. 

Over the last week many of the higher elevations have seen their fall color peak while some of the valleys still have a little more time until peak color is achieved.

The fall color has become a little more widespread across the Piedmont Triad, but the intensity of that color has remained relatively low. 

The vibrant colors through the mountains of North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia will slowly spill through the foothills and into the Piedmont over the next couple of weeks. 

The typical fall color peak in the mountains is during late September, but due to a warmer than average summer the peak has been slightly delayed.  Peak color is expected over the next week.

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 theWFMY News 2 facebook page.
