I suppose having time at home whilst experiencing a Spring like no other certainly helped, but I do hope we don't now end up with a full Summer. Though today is a damn good start 😁☀

Let’s hope so but knowing our luck it’ll be lashing it down.

Well you will soon find out, Summer 2020 in Northern Hemisphere will begin on
Saturday 20 June > How many days until Summer?
Hmm, well that all depends on how you define summer. I always go for the meteorological one as it makes more sense. Summer is June, July and August. Simple.
I could never get my head around still being in spring on 20th June or autumn, just 5 days from Christmas.

That's Winter that's close to Christmas, who gave the Met office permission to change the seasons 🤣

Yep, agreed:

Dec/Jan/Feb = Winter
Mar/Apr/May = Spring
Jun/Jul/Aug = Summer
Sep/Oct/Nov = Autumn

Dec/Jan/Feb = Winter
Mar/Apr/May = Spring
Jun/Jul/Aug = Summer
Sep/Oct/Nov = Autumn
Slightly different up North, we have....

Jul/Aug/Sep = Autumn
Oct/Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar = Winter
Apr/May/Jun = Spring

Autumn and Spring actually share June and July, as Summer, if it happens, occurs anywhere between June 22nd and July 13th, just for a day usually. Very occasionally we'll have a heatwave, and that may involve temperatures reaching double digits for a couple of consecutive days. But it's not happened in my lifetime!

The plus side is we become fairly hardy..... remember the 'Beast From The East'?

I don't agree with that system because simply it's incorrect, you can believe what you want, even though it's wrong :devil: :D

You're completely right of course. I know it's wrong, but meh, there's more important sh*t to be correct about :)

In Scotland it is further north & seasons are also Different:

Jul/Aug = Autumn
Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar/Apr = Winter
May/Jun/Jul = Spring
Jul 14th = Summer

granted the weather has not been too bad futinv lockdown but last night the Heavens opened just to remind us we are still in Scotland 😃

I've never really been one for weather forecasts either. No matter how good the latest & greatest weather app/ service claims to be, I often find that even when they claim a 97% accuracy, I still manage to somehow always look at the weather and be in that 3% :laugh:

Us Brits are mental, we base entire conversations on what the weather is doing! If you look at the 4 seasons 'calendar' above it's really easy to 'predict' the weather -
  • In Winter, it's likely that it'll be cold and wet (we don't have that white stuff down here @The Dreamer - 'Snow'?).
  • In Summer, it'll quite probably be hot.
The other 2 seasons are just a mish-mash of these 2 really.

It does make me chuckle that at this time of the year, the tabloids will normally run a story, telling us it's the 'Hottest Day of the Year So Far'. Because we're heading into Summer, it's completely predictable that generally speaking, it will get hotter - that's kind of how Summer has worked, ever since it was invented. Do the tabloids think we understand this basic concept? Nope, every day from now until September, they will report that today is now the 'Hottest Day of the Year So Far' :facepalm:

Unless it chucks it down with rain, like today lol.

Tbh If the skies stay so clear and the temperature keeps rising I am dreading July and August. Think I might have to move to Scotland.
