I apologize if this ha been addressed before, I did a search yesterday and didn't really get a definitve answer.
I'm trying to find out what the weather will be like in Nova Scotia the end of Sept. Our cruise will visit Halifax, Sydney, and Saint John after the 22 of september. We live in Nevada, so actually like to encounter a little rain on vacation as we get to see is so seldom, lol. And we went to Alaska the first week of May, so the cooler weather is welcome too. But I can't seem to find any threads addressing what I might expect as far as the weather......
I appreaciate any input ya'll can provide. Thanks loads for your help.
Late September is a lovely time of year in Saint John and Halifax. The chance of fog is much less than in the summer, although it does happen. The temperatures are generally in the low sixties in the morning but can rise into the seventies in the afternoon on a sunny day. If it is rainy they will be in the sixties.
We tend to get the tail end of hurricanes here in the fall, but with the notable exception of Hurricane Juan a few years ago, they rarely amount to much. The temperature is quite balmy if that happens as all that warm, moist air is being pushed north.
Sydney is further north than Halifax and Saint John so maybe someone from there can address your question. I suspect it would be much the same as here---maybe a few degrees cooler, but not by much.
I wish you fair skies and hope you enjoy your visit to our area!!!
