With Frost and Rain, Fall Colors May Not Last Long
By Alison Gowans, Reporter
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - It may seem this year’s fall colors have just arrived, but with wintery mix and frost settling over the Corridor, they may not last long.
According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, the peak for fall leaves in Central Iowa is the first through third weeks in October. The DNR's weekly color report states the trees are starting to defoliate, but oaks are only 50 percent turned and should continue to to display bright colors over the next week. However, windy, rainy weather and frost can diminish the season’s display.
All the more reason for the nature enthusiasts out there to document this year’s fall leaves while they’re vibrant.
