Maybe a warm spring and a (relatively) cool summer makes that the leaves are already changing in August. This was the case in The Netherlands in 2007: the leaves coloured red late August. But there were also years that the first leaves changed as late as October. By the way, spring ends here mid-July and autumn counts in around mid-August with daily lows averaging 13C (55-56F) and daily highs regulary below 20C (68F).

I have to state that my latitude is 52North. It is practically only in Europe that climate is perfectly liveable that far north. Thanks to mild winters, the growing season is quite long and vegetation is fairly rich.

Fall is nature's way of blushing before she disrobes for the winter

Kamloops in Canada is at the same latitude and summer daily highs average 28C and winters aren't colder than say central Europe.

Kamloops is located in a very different climatic area than central Europe. It lies in a rain shadow" leeward of the Coast Mountains and is geographically connected to similar semi-desert and desert areas in the central parts of Washington and Oregon, as well as areas of Nevada and Idaho.
