Fall Color 2021: Maybe Next Week.

Posted in Fall Colors, Kentucky at 5:11 pm by Thomas

So the weather has continued to be warm and wet this week and that has seemingly slowed the color change to a crawl. The truth is the leaves are changing and dropping a little at a time so by the time the process really gets going there may not be many leaves left. The best colors that we are hearing about are several hours away in the Blue Ridge mountains above the 5000 foot mark.

There is a strong cold front rolling through tonight that will usher in more normal temperatures for this time of the year. We are expected to see several mornings in the 30’s that will hopefully kick start more color for next weekend. Of course wind and rain is not a good combination when you want leaves to stay on a tree but thinking the leave loss won’t be too great.

I snapped a few pictures late in the day with the sun coming through the clouds.
