What will be Pantone's Color of the Year for 2021?

Question

Every year since 2000, Pantone conducts a secretive process to select their "Color of the Year", which they usually announce for the upcoming year around early December. (Non)Prophets, a podcast started by a team of three forecasters, has made a little game of forecasting the Color. They nailed the Color forecast for 2020. (Unrelated: See also their interview of @Anthony.)

Let's see if we can forecast the Color for 2021. Specifically, What will be the wavelength (in nm) of Pantone's Color of the Year for 2021?

The question will be resolved according to the approximate wavelength of the Color as estimated by the relevant Encycolorpedia entry, rounded to the nearest integer. The announcement of the color typically occurs around early December, but the date is not certain, so the question will retroactively close 24 hours before the announcement is made.

This question resolves ambiguously if the wavelength reported by Encycolorpedia is outside the range 380-740nm (inclusive).
