ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The Department of Natural Resources predicts a brilliant fall color season for Minnesota.
Despite dry weather lately, Patricia Arndt of the Division of Parks and Trails says trees got adequate rain earlier this season. She says the state just needs a combination of sunny days and cool nights in the weeks ahead to bring out the fall colors.
Colors typically peak between mid-September and early October in northern third of Minnesota, between late September and early October in central third and between late September and mid-October in southern third including the Twin Cities.
The statewide fall color report on the DNR's website is updated every Thursday. The DNR also offers fall colors "to go" on a mobile website compatible with smart phones and tablets.
