Southern IL has passed peak for Fall colors, but even after midweek rains took down the leaves of most of the trees, a few last reminders of the beauty of the season remained. Blustery conditions early in the afternoon beneath sunny skies signaled the beginning to a lovely weekend to take in the last of the colors before next week's storm system promises much colder temperatures and possibly the region's first flakes. The colors of Fall will give way to winter by next week.
