I have reservations on a cruise to Halifax the second week of September and wondered what the weather is like at that time of year. High and low temperatures?

Default Halifax Harbour

The Maritimes are gorgeous in the Fall. Halifax will be a treat. The waterfront at Pier 21 (where your cruise will come in) is fantastic...here's what it looked like during the tallships this summer...the view is from Pier1, where your cruise ship docks.

The city is great, and the people friendly.

If you have anyone in your group with a fussy diet, I suggest checking out the "Wooden Monkey" in Downtown Halifax (theatre district..right next to the Economy Shoe Shop Restaurant).
The Wooden Monkey was our favourite while we lived in Halifax. I could get their beef stew, and my vegetarian wife could eat most of the menu. Great place, great food, great service. An interesting side note is the restaurant was built using the fallen timbers that resulted from Hurricane Juan and White Juan (the blizzard that followed it) some years back.
You'll have a wonderful time.

Bring layers of clothing. Along the waterfront can be many degrees colder than it might be a couple miles inland. It can be a damp cold as well. Not always the case, but take it from one who quickly went shopping for some fleece on a July dayin Halifax.

I believe that the source of the originally posted weather information was from the Halifax airport which is some 20+ Km inland. FWIW, Canada uses the metric system so quoting those temperature figures will get you blank looks with any Haligonian under about the age of 40. 70 degrees f is 21 degrees celsius
