There are reports of some pretty yellows and oranges around the Leslie area. Predicted peak of color: Late October.

Comments: Motorists attending the 26th Annual King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena-West Helena and 48th Annual Wiederkehr Village Weinfest in Wiederkehr Village this weekend will see some hints of color in early-changing understory foliage. Another week will bring more fall color development to the northern third of Arkansas. Hints of autumn are easy to see but hardwoods are still predominantly green.
