    Get and stay up to date information on the Smoky Mountain foliage forecast with www.gatlinburgtnguide.com. Here is an excerpt from their post for this year:

    “Each year, we post the very first Gatlinburg Fall Colors Forecast before anyone else, which we have historically posted in August…way before anyone else even attempts to “guess”. We put a lot of research and experience into providing the most accurate forecasts, which have been right on the money since we started posting our fall foliage forecasts years ago! Before you think we’re crazy, keep reading to see the science behind our prediction and see when we expect fall colors to start appearing throughout the Smoky Mountains.

    Fall is a special season in Gatlinburg, TN and the Smoky Mountains as the temperatures drop, sweet aromas fill the air, and trees turn into an incredibly beautiful display of colors. The fall colors in Gatlinburg are one of the most beautiful sights that you will ever see. Each year, people always ask when the leaves will change color in Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains in hopes of planning a visit at just the right time to see the colors at their peak (when they are the brightest).

    Foliage Forecast: September 17, 2021 – While the weather has been warm and enjoyable, the higher temps haven’t helped foliage get in the color-changing mood just yet. A quick look at the webcams around Gatlinburg show that pretty much everything is still green. There are some cooler temperatures in the forecast for the next two weeks, which look a bit more favorable for fall colors. However, the highs will still be in the 70’s and the rain in the forecast for the next week throws in a slight speedbump as well.”
