The Ohio Department of Natural Resources released another color update and it is showing more of our state parks showing changing color.

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.

When it comes to a cooperative forecast to enjoy the beautiful colors are our parks, this weekend will be pretty good. Friday is looking dry and mild with highs in the upper 70s. This weekend we will stay near 80 degrees. The most dry time for the weekend will be both Saturday and Sunday afternoon, so get your hikes in early in the day.
