Bay of Fundy Weather
Fundy National Park shares the varied climates of Bay of Fundy and southern New Brunswick. In summer, daytime temperatures vary widely between Alma, which is at sea level, and therefore subjected to cooler water temperatures and the highlands of Fundy National Park, which are often several degrees warmer. While the average summer temperature is 22 C° in the park interior, it may be 6 C° cooler on the same day on the nearby coast. No need for air conditioning, nights are cool and comfortable for sleeping.
September and October are favourite months as the maples and birch begin to turn to brilliant fall colours, yet the weather is still pleasant, dry and warm.
