Team Meteorological season here!

From NOAA:

"Meteorological observing and forecasting led to the creation of these seasons, and they are more closely tied to our monthly civil calendar than the astronomical seasons are. The length of the meteorological seasons is also more consistent, ranging from 90 days for winter of a non-leap year to 92 days for spring and summer. By following the civil calendar and having less variation in season length and season start, it becomes much easier to calculate seasonal statistics from the monthly statistics, both of which are very useful for agriculture, commerce, and a variety of other purposes."

Regardless, I'm still sticking with solstices and equinoxes. Valid points are made above, but the astronomical stuff still works for me.

Its not about "team" (lol) its just about saying the right thing and understanding it. Only time I would use astronomical seasons is if Im talking about planning an event or something.

But if someone doesnt mention weather stats then I can see why its hard to accept it. They might not know the reason Fall starts early September. Kinda crazy continuing to hear a debate on this...in a weather thread! Lol

My time in retail is part of why I'm like that. I'm so sick of them pushing "summer" sometimes the second Easter finishes or, like now, when Halloween and pumpkin spice everything gets shoved down your throat in late August. Don't even get me started on Christmas!


Also...the day is still longer than 12 hours, last time I checked. Therefore, no equinox yet.


Happy that Hartford County has no advisories for what's left of Dorian.

Check it out guys. Cat 1 Hurricane off the coast. MA capes getting downpours from it.


Open those doors and windows this morning. 50s across CT! 40s probably in some Litchfield hills. Enjoy the weekend.

You guys are nuts! I had to close my windows last night. Kept the bedroom one open a crack but it was a cold breeze. I think I have 3 partially open now and my feet are cold!

I'm with you! I had to close my windows last night too and get a heavier blanket.

Just saw this nice map, courtesy of Geoff Fox:

"Hurricane Dorian is no more. It has transitioned to a cold core storm -- in other words, just another big storm in the North Atlantic. Here's a history of where Dorian's been and when."

It has so been nice past 2 weeks+!!

August 23 is when the pattern seemed to have changed for the Northeast.

Only 6 of last 18 days the max has been above normal for Bridgeport, CT.

No crazy heat moving forwards either. Gonna be a great September finally?
