Wondering how it works? Our patent-pending model considers a host of environmental variables that contribue to fall foliage progression. As summer transitions into fall, the model predicts how colorful the foliage is at more than 18 million locations in the Lower 48, according to how the environment and atmosphere are changing.
The fall map can tell you when and where colors will be at their peak, so you don't have to roll the dice on a trip to the mountains. We do not claim 100% accuracy with the model, but we do everything in our power to provide supplemental reports to verify our maps each week.
Utilizing archived environmental data, we have run our model for each fall foliage season all the way back to 1981. Visit the Map Archive to access daily maps for each season, and enjoy a host of supplemental maps depicting when the foliage reached its peak, how early/late it was, and much more.
Compare your old fall pictures with our archived maps and let us know how they stack up! The more feedback we receive, the more accurate our model will become.
