Fall foliage season is about to begin in Virginia

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The peak of fall foliage season for the Richmond area is the first two weeks of November and many of us are getting anxious for the leaves to start turning.

The Virginia Department of Forestry reports the first splashes of color will show up in the shrubs and vines of the forest.  So right now, you shouldn't be looking up to see the best show!

The department posts a weekly color update on their website, plus they have a map of peak foliage season across Virginia.
