(CNN) — It’s finally October, which means one thing: Fall is in full swing.
As the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, turn your gaze towards the trees to see that beautiful collage of red, purple, orange and yellow.
The map is one of the only fall leaf tools that provides accurate predictions for the entire continental US, according to the Smoky Mountains tourism site.
Predicting the exact move Mother Nature’s exact moves is difficult, but the map is as accurate as the casual leaf peeper can expect it to be.
The good news: If you were worried that autumn would never come, fear no more. The map appears to show that by November 2, every state in the US will see at least a little bit of foliage.
