Fall colours in Maritimes

Considering visiting NB and NS for 5-6 days in October. We could be there as early as Oct 7 and leave as late as Oct 26. What’s the best time to see fall colours in this time period? Or will we have missed it already?

Fall Foliage Peak depends on various things
Light / Latitude, Altitude, and Climate / Weather

So generally speaking … cooler the location, the sooner the leaves will turn
So on the same latitude, mountains before valleys, etc

Weather is the most unpredictable condition

If it’s a warm fall … the transition / peak can be delayed by say a week

Much like Quebec … NB & NS tend to peak late September / early October

So by Thanksgiving Weekend you’ve missed the peak for much of the Province
Although it could be prime in and around cities … cuz of their greenhouse effect

PS … States & Provinces with Fall Foliage tend to have websites that show that progression for leaf watching tourists
Google and you’ll find them
