ROANOKE COUNTY,Va. -

It's starting to feel a lot like fall, especially with the temperatures dropping this week.
When it comes to fall foliage it seems to be hit or miss in our area.

There are still a lot of green leaves on trees. No worries, the beautiful fall colors will arrive soon.

“There's always a lot of factors every year that effect tree color. Two most important are declining day light hours; our days get shorter and cool crisp nights,” said Chris Thomsen of Virginia Department of Forestry.

Thomsen says we should start seeing the color of leaves change in the next couple of weeks.
