Due to the warmer than normal temperatures, leaves are slowly starting their autumn color transformation, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. With cooler temperatures forecasted, those colors should soon appear statewide.

“Some fall color is developing slowly in pockets around the state,” said ODNR Fall Color Forester Greg Smith. “But with the onset of cooler temperatures, the fall colors of the season will soon emerge.”
