Welcome to Autumn. It officially arrived just before sunrise today, September 23, 2011, across the great state of Tennessee. With autumn's arrival leaves will begin their change. Expect glowing golds, red, oranges, and other colors.
Typically the peak time of the color change occurs from mid-October is the extreme eastern, more moutainous region of Tennessee to late November in the Memphis area.
There are all sorts of resources available on the web to keep up as the leaves begin their changes. I'll list a few below.
- Tennessee Department of Tourist Development has a fall guide with weekly foilage reports, forecasts, and much more, including webcams.
- About.com has a fantastic page on Tennessee's fall colors.
- The Weather Channel has a Fall Foilage map which shows colors.
Autumn is a gorgeous time of year in Nashville. Some of the great places to view leaves is a Percy Warner Park along with Centennial Park near Vanderbilt. Get out in the great weather in October and November and let's go leaf viewing!
