Finally Autumn Arrives With Cold Front
Autumn has arrived in the Smokies! Finally a cold front is coming to the area of the Great Smoky Mountains bringing cooler temperatures. Warm sunny days and cool nights are just what we need to get this year’s fall foliage show started. A cold front will pass through East Tennessee and the North Carolina mountains today bringing an end to the summer like weather.
The Great Smoky Mountains Guide Fall Foliage has already started posting our weekly fall foliage reports and updates. Check out our reports on the Fall Foliage page. We also have a web cam page that is a great place to view some sites in and around the Great Smoky Mountains. See for yourselves what the view looks like on our live web cam links! We have webcams from Look Rock, Puchase Rock, views of Mt. LeConte, views of Gatlinburg plus many more.
With the cooler temperatures in the forecast and with October less than a week away it is time to expect the annual fall foliage show to excellent. Be sure to visit Great Smoky Mountains Guide for when and where to visit in the Great Smoky Mountains and surrounding areas to see the colorful display of autumn this year.
In October the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the most popular areas in the nation for viewing fall foliage. The Smokies have a wide range of elevations making it easy to ride though the mountains ans see a splendid display of color. The colors first reach peak color in the highest elevations (over 5,000 ft). Then peak will descend down into the mid elevations. Lastly the lowest elevations below 2,000 ft will put on a show. So all through the month of October and even into early November there is a colorful display of fall foliage.
Fall is here and cooler temperatures are on the way. Grab a warm sweater and cup of hot apple cider and get ready to enjoy the most breathtaking views of the majestic Great Smoky Mountains during this year’s fall foliage season!
