What causes the leaves to change colors in the Smoky Mountains? There’s no question that fall in the Smoky Mountains is one of the most beautiful times of year. The weather changes from humid and hot to a cool temperament, perfect for spending time outside, and the leaves transform from their normal green to a variety of vibrant hues. Ranging anywhere from a bright, fiery, red to a more mellow golden yellow, these astonishing colors appear to almost blanket the region with their beauty all season.
The one question that remains, however, is what is it about this magical time of year that causes the leaves to change colors? To help answer this question, Cabin Fever Vacations, a choice Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg cabin rental company, recently announced the science behind the Smoky Mountains fall weather.
“There is nothing quite like the tranquility that comes with the Smoky Mountains fall weather,” said a spokesperson for Cabin Fever Vacations. “The cooler temperatures, the colorful trees and crisp mountain air create the perfect setting for anyone looking to enjoy some time outdoors this season.”
According to the Gatlinburg cabin rental company, the leaves’ colors are dependent on the amount of anthocyanin pigments and carotenoids that are present once the chlorophyll begins to disappear from a lack of sunlight as days become shorter. In layman's terms, this means that the fall color of the leaf is determined by the color-influencing chemicals left once the green producers are gone. The reason that the colors begin in the Smokies so much earlier is because the cooler temps at higher elevations help speed up the transitioning process.
