Fall is official! It strolled into town Tuesday, September 22, at 8:31 a.m. While warmer temperatures keep flirting with our region, it will soon turn colder and sweater weather will be upon us. Warm days and cool nights will help to bring about a changing of the leaves.
Kansas is still many weeks away from reaching the peak of our fall foliage. We begin to see eastern and western areas peak first in late October. The rest of the state has to wait until early November.
In addition to the warm days and cool nights, added moisture will also help to bring out those vivid colors in the weeks ahead. Unless we start to see a pattern change, this is one key ingredient we may miss out on this season but overall should still be a decent viewing this year.
