The fall colors may not be as bright this season as they were in 2009, which was one of the most impressive fall seasons Central Virginia has seen in years.

Ted Hughes, a Park Ranger, notes "I think we are not going to have quite the brilliant colors because we haven't had the rain, we haven't had the moisture, and we haven't had to cool nights."

The Magnolia Trees along the Blue Ridge Parkway are already yellowing and loosing their leaves, and is not because of the date on the calender.

Hughes says the peak of the fall color season will be on October 10.
