Earlier, Longer Fall Color Season Predicted For 2017

Postby wentworth » Tue Aug 29, 2017 2:52 am

DailyMail has an article out 8/28/17 showing earlier Fall this year, with the NorthEast Kingdom near Peak on Sept 23rd(like in 2014). The colors are also predicted to last longer this year than last year--From the Smoky Mountains website,an Algorithm with several million data points,and 50,000 predictive data pieces. Based on NOAA historical temperatures,precipitation forecast,forecast temps,forecast precipitation, and historical leaf peak trends----Although its been said that predicting when and how good a Fall season may be, is more of an Art than a Science,perhaps the Science is catching up

Well wouldn't that be nice Wentworth!!! :D We will know in just a few weeks how accurate this report is. I think it's still early for these predictions.....especially predicting the length of the season. But as always, it's interesting to follow these reports. When are you planning on arriving this year?
