Much warmer this morning. I went out early this morning and found patchy light fog and it had lifted by 7:45 AM except over the Buffalo River below Pruitt. The interaction with the sunlight was pretty, however. In 2 days the tree color change has advanced a bit, with more oranges, and yellows showing of the hillsides. Saw a White-Throated Sparrow in a changing dogwood on the way back:

There is still lots of green left so I am guessing still 1 1/2 – 2  weeks until peek colors. It was a cool breezy day (42F this morning) with only very early fog:

Above the clouds and rain

Above the clouds and rain

We have accumulated 6.85 inches of rain here in the mountains during the past 2 and 1/2 days. I left at 9 AM and got a photo from AR 327. This is unusual for October, usually our nicest month temperature and precipitation wise. The Buffalo River at Ponca is 6″ over the bridge and rising fast. On the way back from Ponca, I got into some clear skies and took the 2nd photo but more thundershowers are on the way. The trees in the Bostons are still mostly green so a few weeks are needed yet for full color.
