Max Armstrong talks about fall color. (audio)

This afternoon, two minutes after 3 it’s all over. It’s this afternoon the autumnal equinox arrives. But for many of us, it won’t feel like fall. It will be 82 in Fargo.

Fall color creeping into our region. If monitoring that creeping for your leaf peeping, you’ve got to go north to peek.
