What can cause my persimmon tree to wilt its leaves before fall color?

Today when I came back home from work I realize that my persimmon tree's leaves completely drooped. It wasn't like this this past weekend. Why would it do this even before it starts its fall foliage color? We have not experienced any frosts yet and this past week, we haven't had temps below 40 degrees and we had 34 degree temperatures couple weeks ago so you know its not from the temperature thats causing this. I am completely puzzled. I've never seen something like this before.

The tree is diospyros kaki 'ichikikei Jiro'.
