Anybody know how the Fall colors are looking near the Smokey's? My family is heading that way in early October and hope to see some beautiful Fall foliage. We've always gone to the Smokey's in April/May so hoping for a good experience.

The end of next week is getting into October. It's not impossible.

It's been a while, but historically, frost is not completely unheard of that early in TN.

Here you go, average last and first frost dates in various locations in TN:

http://www.victoryseeds.com/frost/tn.html

According to that, several spots have a historical average first frost date around Oct. 6-8.

First average "freeze" date comes more toward to the end of the month.

Noticed this weather report from Dalton, GA this afternoon at 5:35 pm.  Definitely made me do a double take.

It is 2020 after all:

They peak in mid October above 2,000 feet or so. You'll see some color at those altitudes or higher in early October, but it won't be as vibrant just yet. The autumn foliage will be nicer this year compared with previous years thanks to abundant, consistent rainfall and moderate temperatures that haven't stressed the trees.

Yes I agree with above. Timing should be closer to normal this year since temps are closer to normal. In other words, earlier than the last 2-3 seasons.

Quote from Chris Bailey (Lexington, KY) to put the last decade of Septembers into perspective.

September 2020 is the first below normal September in Lexington since 2012 and a whopping 11 degrees colder than last September, the hottest on record.  Last September was our driest month in history with only a Trace. #kywx

I knew it had been awhile since we experienced a cool September, but I was thinking along the lines of 3-4 years.  It has certainly been a very long stretch of warm, dry autumns.  Let's hope this is the start of a new trend, but I'm not holding my breath (unless I'm around someone without a mask).

Sadly it looks like October is going to wind up above normal (though not ridiculously so).
