LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Although the heat doesn't feel like it, you can tell fall is close since school is back in session and pumpkin products are hitting the shelves.
In today's Science with Sarah, we get an expert preview into the autumn colors we can expect.
The new season is right around the corner, and while most Arkansans wonder what kind of weather is ahead of us, the outlook for the foliage is promising.
Fall colors will be bursting before you know it, but it's summer's weather that is giving foliage a hopeful forecast.
"A cool wet summer means happy trees, and they're really growing a lot this year, lots of leaves, you can kind of see that everything is nice and intently green."
Tamara Walkingstick is an associate professor of forestry, and she says the sufficient rain has been crucial this season.
