How is the fall color look like in Williamsburg so far?

I'm planning a trip there on the weekend Oct 20-22 as part of a foliage trip but not sure it's a good idea. Anyone has an update of how the tree color looks like so far? May change a course if it's not worth it.

Hard to say when exactly the peak color will be, but right now, green is still rather dominant with streaks of yellow, and reds potentially any day now.

The forecast for the rest of this week is cool days and cooler nights, so there should be some change in the foliage color as the week progresses.

Thank you all for the replys. We are going there with part on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I guess we should see some color there.

Can't speak for Williamsburg, but we were in Charlottesville & Staunton 10/11 to 10/14 wasn't much color change at all.

Local newspaper Va. Pilot had an article just this morning saying colors wouldn't be good this year due to lack of rain.

So how were the colors?

We will most likely be going this weekend and hoping for some beautiful fall colors :)

It's more like fall compared to two weeks ago. But green is still fairly dominant, with yellows and reds getting much stronger.

And what a difference just a few days make. About the only green left are the evergreens, otherwise nice strong range of fall colors have really popped out.

Yes, we were out and about yesterday, and noticed lots of color. The weather has turned sharply colder, so color will be around for a bit.
