Warmer temps have arrived, and we have a few days without rain forecasted this week, which means it’s perfect leaf-peeping time. We’ve hit peak foliage in a number of areas (see table below) Large patches of yellow are starting up Kebler and Ohio Pass, and with cold temps, things should continue to move along pretty quickly.
