Leaves are changing colors signaling fall is here


You've probably noticed the leaves have been changing colors.

The color changes depend a lot on the weather.

They usually start about the second week of October..

But this year its a little ahead of schedule.

So we asked a nature expert if the drought has anything to do with the early arrival.

"I really don't think so. It did have some effect on the evergreens, smaller bushes depends on the bushes they did have some problems," said nature expert Andy Langdon. "It depends on the species."

The bright colors will stay around for a couple of weeks so you still have time to enjoy them.
