The Maples are gloriously beautiful now with a lot of bright red shades and some yellows as well. They should reach their peak colors by this weekend. The Sourwoods are now at their peak and their intense red is the most conspicuous color throughout the area. In different open areas, the Sumacs are contributing a red and gold mix.
The National Weather Service is calling for some frosty morning temperatures as we head toward the weekend. The cold mornings generally spur the color changes along rather quickly.
