In only the past week, the leaves in Southeast New Brunswick have turned to sharp hues of red, orange, yellow and gold.

The fall foliage typically nears its colour peak around Thanksgiving in the southern half of the province.

But due to a warm, dry summer in Greater Moncton and the lack of a killing frost so far this autumn, the annual show started a bit later than usual.

Forecasters say a sharp cool down is expected this weekend as an Arctic chill will keep daytime highs barely reaching 10 C and nights below freezing.
