North Carolina About To See It’s Brightest Fall Colors in Decades


North Carolina’s 2020 fall colors are expected to be the brightest and most beautiful in decades.

According to NOAA, the North Carolina mountains have experienced one of their warmest and wettest years on record, both of which add to the brightest of fall colors in the tree tops.

North Carolina’s peak season will start toward the beginning of October in the higher elevations and run until the end of October in the Piedmont.
