The NC fall foliage 2014 forecast for the mountains of North Carolina is out and biologist of Western North Carolina report the possibility of duller colors for the annual fall foliage show due to a wetter spring, Tulip poplar trees like it wetter than average so their colors of yellow and golden may last longer this year. The pretty red colors this year may be less than normal due to the wet spring and summer. But if September is dry the red colors of the sourwood, red maple and dogwood trees may still happen when the fall foliage show arrives. This coming fall foliage show may be extended and last longer than usual due to the possible above-average temperatures forecast for fall. It’s a complicated equation but regardless a NC fall foliage show is always beautiful, some years better than others, but still beautiful!
