Here's a fall color website for Tennessee.

Fall for Tennessee - Official TN Site for Seasonal Activities, Attractions and Events

In and around the Chattanooga area, I have been there at the beginning of October, the end of October, and the 2nd week of November. By far, the 2nd week of November was the most colorful. I will defer that as many speak above, the amount of rain, the timing of when rain comes, the temperature changes and when they occur likely all contribute.

End of October



2nd week of November

This picture was also from the second week of November, several years ago:

And this was on Halloween last year. You can see a little color, but in the foreground are some leaves that are still very green. Oh, and it was quite warm that day, I believe. I wore a Tshirt and jeans all day, and remember sweating:

Lamplight & Grizzlybear34, Thanks for the fall photos. Looks like mid Mid November is peak foilage. I will have to plan that for fall 2010 if my daughter is accepted to Belmont U.
Years ago my my brother and I flew over Missouri in the fall in his small plane and it was awesome from the air.

If you plan for the first or second week of November, you'll probably at least see some color. But it can vary for different areas, even places that aren't far apart. For example, when I took the picture from Gainesboro, much of it also looked like this:


You can see that at the lower elevations most of the leaves are already gone, even though this picture was taken the same day as the other. And when I got back to Murfreesboro the next day, there were still quite a few leaves on the trees, some of them still green!
