My parents' live at about 1500' between Blountville and Kingsport and they are already losing a lot of leaves - just drying up and falling.

My Kingsport office is below 1200' and it's almost always five degrees hotter or so than in Bristol or where my parents live. It has been brutal here - pretty much 90 or above and no appreciable rain all month. I often walk at lunch and it's largely been too hot to do. There were some isolated showers last Saturday, but that's all I can remember.

I was in Bristol last Friday afternoon and saw 97/98 consistently on the call.

Most of TN is now D-0.

Yeah, it's always sort of amazed me that even though Bristol and JC aren't that far apart, every fall when I'd go to visit my daughter I'd notice that JC always seemed to see fall color ahead of Bristol. Interesting to see that kind of variation within such a short distance.

Any fall color is likely done for with this weather unfortunately.

Indeed. At my house, that seems to be the case. This is a situation so bad that it's going to be impossible for the trees to become active again until late March/early April. Very depressing, considering the peak autumn foliage is usually over a month later than this...

Same in southern Indiana, less than one inch of rain the last month and a half. Horrid heat and brutal sun with off and in humidity.

I ran across some pics from early last November on my phone and the leaves were still mostly out. The good news is that the heat has really gone down over the last few days.

The peak is usually in late October here. Still though, that is "over a month" after the time of writing.

Indeed. November is usually one of the most depressing months for me. Everything just starts feeling so dark and dead then. The same feeling gets even worse in December and gets no better in January; only in February do things improve.

Also, I forgot to take a good look at the Caney and Indian Creek today. Sorry everyone.

Pretty much the entire state is now in some level of drought, with a lot of D1 and a small bit of D2.

We've had a bit of drizzle in the Tri-Cities, but nothing significant. Burn bans are being put into place and I'm becoming more concerned about wildfires as leaves fall. Highs will remain in the upper 80s with only a nominal chance of remain at least until next Friday here in the Tri-Cities.

I’m in one of the small pockets with no drought. My workplace is in D-1. You can definitely tell the difference.

I have a few sugar maple trees that lost a good chunk of leaves (turned half brown). I have even watered them. Horrid drought and heat, a very depressing Fall. Plan on going to the Northwoods next weekend to actually have nice Fall weather.
