Autumnal

         
Autumnal Season

The autumnal ecological season, called fall in North America but autumn elsewhere, needs no explanation. It is that time when the landscape transitions from summer to winter. It follows the serotinal season (late summer) when leaves of deciduous trees and many forbs and grasses begin to change color, and precedes the the usually snow-blanketed hibernal season (winter). In Minnesota, the Autumnal season usually begins about September 15 and ends about November 1. In the Twin Cities metro area it typically arrives late September to early (north metro) to mid- (south metro) October. Deciduous leaves are in full fall color then turn brown and fall to the ground. Birds migrate back to wintering areas.

The advance of the season can be watched on the Minnesota DNR's Fall Colors Web page. The map displayed there is updated daily. The Autumnal season has arrived in those areas colored red (75–100%) and dark brown (past peak). In 2015, the Autumnal season arrived late due to unseasonably warm weather. The northwest corner is the first area in Minnesota to see peak fall colors each year. This year trees in that area reached peak color in the week of September 24 and were past peak October 6. The Twin Cities metro area usually sees peak fall color from late September to mid-October. This year on October 10 the metro area was seeing just 25% to 50% fall color. Five days later, October 15, nearly all parks in the Twin Cities were at their peak. By October 22, most were past peak.
