These are Chamber of Commerce weather days in Minnesota.
Perfect marathon weather, Twins playoffs in town under crystal clear October skies, and fall colors busting peak in the metro. Does it get any better than this?
According to the latest fall color report form the Minnesota DNR, colors are at or near peak this week in the metro with 50% to 100% color. Colors are past peak now in much of northern Minnesota.
A tour of my favorite fall color spots near the Huttner Weather Lab in the west metro confirms peaking colors today. So I'm calling it. Peak fall color occurred at precisely 4:03pm Tuesday October 5th at the Huttner Weather Lab this year.
Here are some colorful shots from a classic fall Tuesday from the shores of Lake Minnetonka in the west metro.
