— Most of the Miami Valley is seeing peak or near peak fall color, according to the latest report from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
The reds, oranges and yellows might not be as bright as they were in the past because of the mild start to the month. The cool nights and sunny days this week might help a few slow changing trees to really pop.
Sycamore State Park and Indian Lake State Park are seeing peak fall color.
The third week of October is typically when the Miami Valley sees the best colors emerge, and true color should show into next week.
Heavy rain or wind can take the leaves off the trees quickly this time of year, but weather this weekend is expected to be mild.
The rest of this week looks sunny and dry with highs in the low to middle 70s.
