Is There a Leaf Forecast Yet?

Asked AnsweredI know that it may be a little bit early but I was wondering if there is any leaf forecast out yet?

Actually, a few local leaf watchers are predicting an early changing season this year. Already, a few spotty trees can be seen starting to change around town, as well as in the higher elevations. A strong El Nino is expected to impact this leaf season. Last time it was a heavy El Nino year, the leaves changed early, quickly, and fell early. Look for updates on the Jefferson County Post and the sister paper, the Gatlinburg Daily Post, throughout the season.
