According to the DNR, this fall color season should be spectacular due to the abundant rainfall this summer. If the weather remains mostly sunny during the day and cool at night, conditions will be perfect for a stunning fall color display!
Peak fall color typically arrives in the northern one-third of the state in mid-September to early October. The central third of the state is most colorful between late September and early October. Southern Minnesota trees reach the height of their fall color late September to mid-October. One exception is the North Shore of Lake Superior, where peak fall color arrives about a week later than inland areas due to the warming effect of the lake. Please note that fall color can change rapidly due to wind, rain and frost, and drought conditions can alter the timing and intensity of fall color.
