Greensboro, NC -- After weeks of turning to the mountains for the fall color the leaves have really started to turn in the Triad.
Many places along the Appalachian Mountains, however, are still experiencing near peak color conditions. As you descend through the foothills the color remains relatively high until you reach the Triad where it is still a little spotty.
The cooler nights and sunny days over the next 3-4 days will provide ideal conditions for increasing vibrant color in the Triad. Karen Neill with the Guilford County Cooperative Extension says that if you want great fall the sunnier the days and the cooler (not freezing) the nights the better.
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
