It may not be that the leaves are turning but that the Drought that many of us across North America have experienced has actually forced the leaves to go into/start up hibernation mode.

I have observed the "fall" feeling as well. Hard to explain. an 80 degree summer day feels different than an 80 degree fall day. lol

In Dallas, we have been experiencing a cool front that is forecast to continue through this week, with a high in the 80 - 90F range later in the week. It has also been unseasonably wet --- today, we had a long, cool, soaking rain.
This type of weather is usually not seen in Dallas until late September. I've lived in the area for decades and have never seen or heard of a cool front this strong in the middle of August. Around here, the entire month of August is traditionally triple digits Farenheit every day with a slight chance of a pop-up thunderstorm. Normally, round about late September we start seeing sustained cool fronts with highs in the upper 80's. So, this that we're seeing this week is WAY early. We shouldn't be having a cool front like this for another month.
A mini-ice-age coming up? I don't know but it is strange, indeed.

I can only report very early stages of fall in North East TN and South West VA. Nothing too extreme. Mosquito and Spider populations are at a HUGE high right now here though. One local city is even "fogging" whole neighborhoods with a strange mist to control the problem.... That in itself deserves its own thread. Sorry to stray semi off topic,but check this out.
