The 2021 Fall Foliage Map

Although the Fall equinox is not until 22nd September (in the northern hemisphere) the Smoky Mountain Fall Foliage Map has already appeared. The first date on the 2021 Fall Foliage Map (30th August) is in just three days time. 

Every year Smoky Mountain releases their interactive Fall Foliage Map, which plots the annual progress of when and where leaves change their colors across the United States. According to the map some northern states are already beginning to notice a change in the colors of leaves. 

The Fall Foliage Map uses historical weather records from all 48 continental states to predict the arrival of fall at the county level across the contiguous United States. The map includes a date control which allows you to view the leaf color you can expect for any date from the beginning of September through to the end of November.

How is that a prediction map as it says when it just tells the present status. No predictions whatsoever.
