Fall colors along the gulf coast are pretty watered down compared to the upper midwest and northeast. You also don't get that crisp snap in the air or the 'smell' of autumn either IMO.

Atlanta does, sorry to disappoint people who don't know. Trees already have some beautiful color and temps forecast to be in the upper 30s this weekend at night.

Atlanta is Piedmont South not Deep South.

Oh my God wow.

Atlanta lows are in the 40s. Calm down. GA is the Deep South, which makes Atlanta Deep South.

I was in Tallahassee a couple of years ago in in mid-December, and even way down there they get little hints of fall color in their deciduous trees, notably maples.

I'd say that pretty much everywhere in the US north of Orlando gets some sort of fall color, although it's mainly the northeastern quadrant of the country (stretching from Minnesota to Maine and down to the Upper South states) that puts on a vibrant foliage display.

Leaves are turning here in northeast Texas even though the temps are still around 90. COME ON, COOL FALL WEATHER.

I just drove through Oklahoma last week on I-40/I-44, and they're already nearly at peak color down there — really surprised as we're just at peak here in the Twin Cities right now, too. I always figured fall came more in November that far south.

I like Pine Trees. Green in the summer, green in the winter. When trees drop all of their leaves, its a depressing sight.
