Noticing An Early Change

I have been noticing for the past few days, the leaves on different trees, are slowly changing to autumnal colors. Since it is August 23, I do think it is odd for the leaves to be changing so early. Around this part of the state, the change usually begins in mid to late September, or early October.

For the past week or so, the nights have been cool, and throw in the rain, which there has been a quite a bit. So could be a possibility of the change coming early. Then again, or could mean nothing, short of an earlier arrival of winter.
