Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Experts are saying one good thing could come from the drought, bright shades of red, orange, and yellow.
A horticulturalist at the Purdue Extension Office says the drought this summer left a lot of trees "stressed out," meaning their leaves will turn more quickly and more vibrantly than healthier trees.
Weather conditions can also a play a role in how long the colors will hang around.
Horticultural Educator, Ricky Kemery says, “Normally we see the best Fall color around anywhere from October 5-20, that's sort of normal. But, things are changing a little bit. With the climate change we're seeing warmer weather heading into the Fall and that can delay things a little bit.”
Kemery predicts the fall colors will last longer this year than in years past.
