The grass does lighten in the winter. Also evergreen broadleaf trees exist here but are not common.

When the high temperature is below 10C is what is my definition of winter. Usually from mid November to mid March in these parts.

leafless trees, and highs below 10c with frequent frost at night are winter-like to me. Not to mention mostly cloudy weather with low sun angle.



Well, it if's only 8c in late March and the sun is shining and the trees are starting to have leaves I would just call it a colder than average day, not a winter day.


Or if I am at the mountain in the spring time and skiing in the sunshine I wouldn't call it winter either. Obviously it's going to be colder at 2000 m asl, but the sun is also gonna be stronger than down here.





I guess it all depends on what you're used to, many italians consider a 13c high to be winter, and when the highs are closer to 20c than to 30c like in september they call it "fall weather" (I don't)

Highs below 10C or Dec-Feb here. But November feels more like winter than most Februaries because of the short days.

A location's cool or cold season or coolest time of year. Which is pretty much the actual definition(coldest season of year). I'd say most the world experiences legit winter. For example, Miami technically has a winter as there are plenty 70/50 days or even cooler weather, a contrast to most the year being around 86/74 or warmer.

So any location that has a pronounced few months of cooler/colder weather which contrasts the rest of the year, has a winter in my definition. Singapore no winter, Darwin....maybe, Honululu, yes though very warm winters, Miami, warm winters.

Most non tropical climate locations, there is no question winter occurs, from very mild(or up to warm), mild, cool, cold, to very cold.

When I put my shell parka on, it is winter. When I take it off, it is summer. There is no spring and fall.

Just has to snow and be cold. If either or is missing than its not a winter. At least "normal" snow and temps with some arctic blasts

When the trees are bare, the birds have left, snow blankets the ground, and everything is quiet. That is winter to me. It usually starts in December and it lasts until March. It is very peaceful and serene. I do enjoy our winters.
