Although it seemed relatively warm overall this October in Southeast New Brunswick, stats from Environment Canada show the average monthly temperature was actually below normal.

While daytime highs were mild, especially during the first half of the month, an autumn chill brought overnight lows well below freezing by late October dropping to a near record low of -6.2 C.

The fall foliage may have peaked a bit later this year – due to a dry late summer/early autumn – but strong winds from the remnants of Patricia brought down most leaves on the 29-30 October with gusts up to 82 km/h.
