(UNDATED) - The fall foliage in Indiana may come early and be not as bright because of our recent drought.

Dry conditions force trees drop their leaves to conserve water.

The color of the leaves may also be affected because of the drought.

The real test of fall colors will be whether we get the normal cool-down period this fall.

Cooler temperatures signal deciduous trees to stop producing chlorophyll.

Experts say it is hard to predict foliage and some trees will still turn colors normally.
