Summer is winding down and the leaves are already starting to change colour as the annual fall foliage show begins in New Brunswick.

Weather Network meteorologist Rachel Modestino notes how several factors mean we may be in for an especially vivid display of reds, yellows and oranges this autumn.

“It does look like it might be quite brilliant this year because of how warm we are and how warm we were and how wet it has been as well. The trees are definitely going to be quite healthy. When the weather does turn colder, I’m sure the colours are going to look absolutely gorgeous this year,” says Modestino.

The peak period for leaf-peeping in the province is from late September to early October according to Tourism New Brunswick.

The north tends to produce colours up to two weeks earlier than the south and the Bay of Fundy region tends to peak the latest, often around Thanksgiving weekend.
