weather in mid oct

Hi My family was thinking of coming up to Boyne Falls, Mi in mid October. I was wondering how the weather is and is this the right time of year to come see fall foliage? I realize nothing is a guarantee with Mother Nature but at least this will give me some idea of the past weather years.

We go to Charlevoix (probably 30 miles away) every year the first weekend in Oct. It is usually on the early side of the color. Weather can vary. In the last eighteen years it has snowed twice : ( , rained the whole weekend once : ( , rained one of the three days several times, but for the most part it has been sunny and very pleasant, a little on the cool side at night, but 50' s 60's even 70's. I watch weather.com and look at their 10day forcast, and I think acccuweather.com has a 15 day. I have noticed the foliage can be at different stages depending on whether you're near the Lake MI or inland. Good luck.

As Rono says, odds are that it will be pleasent but cool.

In recent year, the timing of foliage has become much more varied, but your timing is probably good.
