Hi 1960man -
<<"I think October can be better than September - better autumn tree colours for one.">>
Certainly it "can" be.
I was rushing a bit, but you will note that I linked to a useful page.
I should have used the phrase "on average."
October is a transition month and the weather on average worsens as October progresses.
I have had beautiful days in December, too, for that matter.
Altitude matters, too. Higher is colder....Lucas used the qualifying phrase "and scenic mountain trips, late June to early October is best for accessibility."
