It’s September, and we’re all ready for a taste of fall after another hot summer. But the big question is: When will it actually arrive? Watching for the leaves to change is one way we can tell the season is, in turn, about to change. The Fall Leaf Map below uses historical data to predict fall foliage across the country. Use the slider at the bottom of the map to see the leaves change from green to yellow, orange, deep red and brown.
“In 2013, potential visitors to the Smoky Mountain region began asking us questions about when the leaves would be most brilliant,” says David Angotti, co-founder of smokymountains.com. From these questions, we built the first version of the Fall Leaf Map and have consistently improved it each year. What started as a fun side-project quickly became the most respected nationwide fall leaf map and one of the best fall resources in the country. Now, tens of millions of people use our map each year to plan vacations, weddings and photography trips. However, the most common use is individuals using the leaf map to check when leaves will peak near their home.”
