(WYMT) - The first day of autumn is September 22. As summer comes to an end, many of us are looking forward to the colors changing on the trees.
To prepare for the most stunning time of the year, SmokyMountains.com just released their annual fall foliage map, which predicts when the leaves will turn yellow, orange and red across the country.
The WYMT Sky Alert Weather Team took that information and applied the fall foliage forecast to Eastern Kentucky.
In the video above, you can see the best time to view the fall colors here in the mountains.
The leaves begin to change colors no later than September 23. Many locations are already seeing some fall colors.
The autumn leaves are expected to peak in color between October 14 and 21, so mid to late October will be the best time to take in the beautiful views of fall foliage here in the mountains.
Our colors will begin to fade, and many of the leaves will fall, by the first week of November.
