How Vibrant Will the Fall Color Forecast Be?

The Asheville area fall leaf season attracts visitors from all over the world. Within 50 miles of Asheville our elevation change ranges from 1500ft to over 6600 ft at Mount Mitchell. This makes for one of the longest leaf seasons in the country.  Marek Rzonca with The Foliage Network, which tracks foliage in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast and the upper Midwest, agrees that when it comes to foliage forecasting it’s all about the future, not the past. Which means we still have a great chance at a vibrant leaf season. According to Kathy Matthews, associate professor of botany with Western Carolina University. “If it’s sunny and dry with temperatures falling, then that portends a brilliant fall color season.”
