Changes are starting in the trees.. where to see the colors!

Columbus (WCMH) – As we finish the first full week of October, trees are starting to change across the state.   There are several parks that already are reporting some changing.


According to the Fall Color Report from ODNR there are several state parks that are good spots to start visiting with your camera:


Here in Central Ohio, there are several spots that have changing leaves, and around Buckeye Lake, the peak is close!!!



In the south there are even some changes going on now.



If you are doing a bit of travelling north, there are some state parks to see the changes too!



We talked about this last week… but it appears our warmer & drier than normal Summer may push back the normal colors a week or so:



Normally, we should be seeing the peak leaf colors around this time in the northern part of the state, and next week in the central part:



There are good apps out there (not associated with NBC 4) like Leaf Peepr (Apple & Android), where you can find real time reports from users on leaf color changes.  From this app, you can also report and post pictures as well.  As with any user submitted apps, there may be some inconsistency, but it can be fun.

If you have any questions about fall colors, or any other weather questions, send me an email:


Also, we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE beautiful fall pictures.   If you have our Storm Team 4 Weather App, you can share pictures via the app.  Also you can email them to me, or share them on my Facebook ( or Twitter (@davidnbc4) accounts… don’t forget to use the hashtag #cbusweathernerd


To see my report from last week on what will cause the leaf color changes:

Enjoy our beautiful state in the Autumn!
