Fall Foliage Maps
As summer fades into Autumn in the northern hemisphere it's time for the return of the annual Fall Foliage Prediction Map. This map from Smoky Mountains predicts the best time to experience Fall across the United States.
The map includes a timeline which allows you to to view the national Fall colors by week from August until the middle of November. The colors on the map provide a handy guide to the Fall colors you can expect at any location during the whole of Autumn.
The Fall Foliage Prediction Map is accompanied by some interesting explanations of why leaves change color in the Fall and why the leaves fall in Autumn.
If you want to find out the best time to view the Fall colors in your area you could try the Weather Channel's Fall Foliage Peak Times map. This map is color coded to show the dates of peak Fall foliage throughout the USA.
