WINONA, Minn. (AP) — While foresters predict a brilliant fall color season for most of Minnesota, the colors could be muted in scenic southeastern Minnesota due to the drought.
The Winona Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/15Re3OL ) that fall colors are showing up early again in the southeast this year, and may not be as spectacular as elsewhere as a moderate drought continues in Winona, Wabasha, Houston and parts of Fillmore County.
Don Mueller, a Department of Natural Resources forest supervisor, says it all depends on the weather. He says trees under stress turn color early.
Last year's hot and dry summer in the southeast resulted in an early showing and leaves that fell early. This year's mix of a cool, wet spring followed by the current hot, dry weather could have a more complex impact.
