DENVER — Tuesday was maybe the last 90-degree day of the season in the Denver area. We saw a big temperature drop and rainfall on Wednesday.

Here is Kenny Long with the Colorado State Forest Service to explain why leafers (which is most of us) don’t need to panic. Watch in the video below.

And if you want to know the best hikes to see these brilliant fall colors, take a look at the best hikes, road trips, and train rides to see Colorado’s changing fall foliage.
