Idk if the almanac can predict that far but I know for boone nc typically the high is in the low 70s can be anything 60-80 on average and the low is usually about 50 can be anywhere 39-60 fall foilage may have started on an abnormally cold year and rain is 50/50 snow is impossible until september for boone. Chances are it'll be a nice day but maybe bring sweater for night time
