Summer Season


Let the summer begin

Between spring and autumn is summer, the hottest season of the year.

In the Northern Hemisphere, it is typically defined as the time between the summer solstice (the year’s longest day), June 21 or 22, and the autumnal equinox (when day and night are equal in length), September 22 or 23.

In the Southern Hemisphere, it is typically defined as the time between the winter solstice (December 22 or 23) and the spring equinox (March 20 or 21).

Only in middle and high latitudes does summer have a distinct temperature contrast from the other seasons; in equatorial regions, monthly temperature variations are typically minimal.

In European languages, the idea of summer is connected to development and maturation, particularly in relation to cultivated plants. In fact, in regions with adequate summer rainfall, summer is the time of year when plant growth is at its highest. Many cultures have used festivals and rites to commemorate summer in honor of how crucial it is to food production.

During the summer, a heat wave is a period of unusually hot weather that is frequently accompanied by high humidity. The dog days are a term used to describe such occurrences in the Northern Hemisphere’s temperate regions in the latter part of the summer.
