Because of above average temperatures, fall colors were slow to bloom this season, and now the DCNR says freezing overnight temperatures this week will likely cause all the vibrant leaves to drop from trees — especially in Washington, Greene and Fayette counties.

The report says, “Fall color has been uniquely beautiful and long-lived, but is not likely to last much longer.”
