Saturday and Sunday at Grandfather Mountain reached
record-breaking temperatures of over 70 degrees.
At one point, temperatures
reached 73 degrees, almost meeting the all-time October high of 75 degrees, set
on October 3, 1986. Grandfather officials say the unseasonably warm weather has
delayed fall color in the area. Nevertheless, trees on the mountain are
changing. Experts predict the color should be at its best in the Grandfather
Mountain area over the next two weeks.
