Richmond, Va. – About half of the Commonwealth is at high or peak color for Halloween weekend. Color is getting much better in the Tidewater, too.

Marek D. Rzonca of The Foliage Network reports peak color across all of western Virginia and just east of the Blue Ridge. High color (61% – 80% change) continues to expand toward the coast, where moderate color (31% – 60% change) is observed there.

You can view the scenery from Shenandoah National Park’s live webcams HERE.

A weekend nor’easter will strengthen east of Virginia’s coast, bringing breezy conditions to our region Saturday into Sunday. That will likely increase leaf drop (leaves falling off of trees). Here is our current status on falling leaves:
