This map was discussed in a Washington Post story several days ago, but the rapidly changing image included with the article was incomprehensible. A link was included, but how many people stop reading in mid-story to click a link? Or remember to go back and check the links? (I have to keep reminding myself about this when I write. Feel free to call me out if I screw up.) I was one of many readers who overlooked the link and thought the rapidly changing image was supposed to be intelligible.
The screenshot above, from the Smoky Mountains website, is for Oct. 16, but the scale runs in one-week increments starting September 4 and ending November 20. I wouldn’t venture to guess how accurate it is, given the vagaries of weather this year. Or any year. But it’s fun and interesting to play with.
Can it really be fall already?
