Unusually early autumn colours, Brynglas, Newport
This August 31st 2011 view is of a horse chestnut tree on the corner of Brynglas Close and Brynglas Drive. The early appearance of browns and golds is not because of a cold spell. Though summer 2011 locally had overall temperatures a little below average, two other factors are likely to have caused this early change of colour. One was the record-breaking high temperatures in April, which advanced vegetation by a fortnight or more. Another was the continuing prolonged spell of below-average rainfall, which causes stress to deciduous trees, some of which react in the way seen here. Locally, the only month with above-average rainfall in 2011 to date (end August) has been June 2011.
