Colors are starting to fade in some northern counties, but the rest of the north along with Westmoreland and Somerset counties have reached peak color. Most of Pittsburgh’s surrounding counties are still about one week away from the best color.
Peak color has arrived 🍂🍁 in the northern tier, Allegheny Plateau, #LaurelHighlands and Poconos.
