What Season Is It?
Summer is officially over! September 22 at 8:54 p.m. is the official start of fall this year and is referred to by meteorologists as the Autumnal Equinox. Each season lasts three months and the change happens around the 21st. (This season is an anomaly i.e., something that is rare.)I still say the easy way to remember when seasons change is to just think 21, as in the legal age! It's not about temperature or precipitation or the "feels like temperature" which includes the percentage of humidity. It's all about a date on the calendar. The seasons are caused by the tilt of the Earth's rotational axis away or toward the sun as it travels through its year-long path around the sun. FYI—the amount of daylight will decrease daily through this season and the next. So, enjoy the sunshine after school hours as long as you can!
