How would I adjust Header transition timing?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently using a scrolling header option that transitions from transparent to a solid color when you begin scrolling (on version 7.1). How can I adjust the header transition timing so that the solid color doesn't arrive until the user hits the second section, if you will? 

For example, please see the pair of screenshots. The transparent header transitions to a black solid background almost immediately; I'd like it to transition to a black solid background at the transition between the hero and the Contact Us section.

  $(window).scroll(function() {
    var scroll = getCurrentScroll();
      if ( scroll >= visibleTop ) {
        else {
function getCurrentScroll() {
    return window.pageYOffset || document.documentElement.scrollTop;
