The “Fall Color Guy”- Dr Howie Neufeld (professor of Biology at App State University in Boone)

Fall officially begins Saturday, September 23, 2023

During his conversation with Verne (WBFJ). Dr Neufeld aka “The Fall Color Guy” will share the science and his prediction for the upcoming ‘color season’ (Fall foliage) based on the weather conditions in the High Country over the past several months along with the latest weather trends. What days are ‘best’ to travel to the High Country to check out the leaves. Hint: The weekends are crowded! The positive impact of tourism in the High Country to the local economy = priceless? (During September, October and November an estimated $600 to $800 million is pumped into the local economy)

Prediction: Peak ‘Fall color’ in the High Country should be around October 10-20th
