BECKLELY, W.Va. — The West Virginia Division of Forestry is reporting the recent hot weather has delayed fall color a bit this year, so peak foliage is still on the horizon all throughout the Mountain State.

The release said some yellow is starting to creep into the greens along W.Va. Route 2 in the northern panhandle, while the hillsides in north-central West Virginia are showing hints of red and yellow.
