The next few weeks will be peak viewing for fall foliage in the D.C. area.

The latest and greatest fall foliage report came in from the Foliage Network on Wednesday and the D.C. area is nearing peak across the mountains. With plenty of great color around the D.C. metro and western suburbs as well, this weekend will be a great time to go out "leaf peeping" with fall-like temperatures and plenty of sunshine.

Foliage Report as of October 17th - The Foliage Network

The latest fall color report shows some color D.C. and east, good color D.C. and west, and great color along the Blue Ridge and west. With a perfect fall weekend ahead of us with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies and highs in the 60s, photo ops will be plentiful. Get out there, take some pictures, and send them to us at

See the foliage in our latest photo gallery!

The next few weeks will be prime viewing for changing leaves in the D.C. area and you can also see the latest leaf drop here. I always loved growing up in the D.C. area watching the beautiful fall colors but boy do I not miss having a big yard in which I spent countless weekends raking, raking and raking!

Enjoy it out there, we're very excited to see your submissions. If we get some really nice ones we will show them on the air during our weather reports!
