OK, fall foliage lovers. If you don't get out to see the beautiful color of area leaves this weekend, well, you're out of luck.
Colors will be at their peak this weekend from the mountains in the west to the heart of our region, according to meteorologist Veronica Johnson.
The winds that have been whipping through the area aren't helping things, however, so much of the color will be knocked off of the trees.
Thinking about the Blue Ridge Mountains? You may not want to make the trip. Johnson said the foliage will be moving past peak color this weekend in a lot of patches through the Blue Ridge.
When you do find good color on leaves, send your pictures to us and we'll showcase them on air and online. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
