You might be able to buy pumpkin-flavored food sooner than usual this year, but don’t count on the fall leaves to appear any earlier. Across the U.S., the foliage will be turning gold and crimson a bit later.
Unfortunately, for autumn-lovers, September is predicted to be markedly warmer than in previous years and the changes in leaf colors are directly related to the temperate. High temperatures are expected to last well into September and even October in some locations.
It looks like fall-foliage fans are looking at a two-week delay in sightseeing.
Curious about the science behind those gold, red, and orange leaves? Head over to Better Homes & Gardens for more on the subject.
