Well northern Michigan, here we are again, with the days quickly getting shorter, temperatures getting cooler, and the beautiful splendor of fall color in the Northwoods quickly showing its face. Northern Michigan is well known for the beautiful displays of fall color that it puts on each fall season, but each season is different, and typically governed by the weather conditions that occur both before and during the fall color season. Specifically, the amount of rain and temperature trends play the biggest role from year to year. Read all about why the leaves change from the National Forest Service.
For those planning a visit to the area to view the fall color, or just for those who are curious, below is a look at the latest fall foliage information across the region, as reported by spotters who live in the area.
Local Update (10/6/13): Fall color is peaking across much of the area, but has not been helped by recent very heavy rains and gusty winds. See below for the latest images from our office for this year versus last.
