MIAMI VALLEY — The Ohio Department of Natural Resources released another color update and it is showing more of our state parks showing changing color.
RELATED: Rain chances on the increase
Fall colors have started to emerge at Indian Lake, Grand Lake St. Mary's, Hueston Woods, and Caesar Creek. Sycamore State Park is nearing peak color there.
Remember that cool nights and sunny days will help produce vibrant colors across the area. The shorter days over the next few weeks is why the color change will ramp up. Peak fall colors will be observed in the Miami Valley the third week of October.

— A spring snow storm brought a major impact to the morning commute, but the storm will still lead to travel implications throughout the day.
“Be sure to keep this in mind when you head out the door,” said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.
A Winter Weather Advisory will continue until 8 tonight. Warren and Butler counties are under a Winter Storm Warning, also until 8 p.m.
THIS AFTERNOON: Snow showers will taper off, but winds may cause drifting across roadways.
“Snow covered roads will be slick and blowing, as well as drifting snow will be a problem,” said Zontini.
WIND: Wind gusts today will reach 25 to 35 mph. The winds will be coming from the north/northwest. Drivers on I-70 in either direction and those traveling north on I-75 should stay spaced out. The snow will also combine with the wind this morning, dropping visibility.
Driving in the snowy, icy or windy weather can make even a short trip more dangerous, Zontini said. It’s important to have a plan if you have to hit the roads during a winter storm.
Several departing and arriving flights at Dayton International Airport have been delayed or canceled this morning. Check your flight status here.
Here are some things to remember from NOAA:
BEFORE YOU START DRIVING
If you can wait to start driving until conditions improve, do so.
If you have to head out, make sure someone knows where you are going, your phone is charged and you have a winter safety kit in your car.
Clear your car completely of snow and ice. It will help improve your visibility and flying snow from your car completely of snow and ice. It will help improve your visibility and flying snow from your car can be dangerous and hit other drivers.
ON THE ROAD
Go slow! Snowy roads may also be icy, and roads that appear wet may be slick.
If you skid, stay calm, take your foot off the gas, turn your wheel where you want your front to go and if you have anti-lock breaks, apply steady pressure.
Leave plenty of space between you and cars around you.
If visibility becomes poor, try to pull over to a safe spot to wait it out. If you need to pull over on the highway, turn off your lights and use your parking break when stopped. This can help so another car won’t mistakenly follow your tail/break lights and hit you.
