Good weather news on the horizon!

Chance for cooler temperatures improving

We may just be a month into official “astrological summer,” and today is quite sticky out there – but prospects are looking good that average temperatures will be steadily on the decline for the rest of the year. Although we won’t start seeing a more pronounced trend until mid August, I’m still a happy camper!

The difference between “meteorological summer” and the summer you all know from the calendar – is typically, the seasons that you can notice and “feel” come about three weeks before the actual date. These dates for the seasons are based on solstices and the equinox – perhaps it’s time to change them?

A little weather data for the geeks: Three months from today – the day will be 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter (Sunrise at 7:12am – Sunset at 6:10pm) – and it’ll be right around 411’s birthday!

Except I just came up with one theory.

The solstices and equinoxes mark the middle of seasons. The holidays I know that mark the beginning are pre-Christian. Most people don’t like starting in the middle. The calendar folk don’t want to put Bealtaine (Lá Bealtaine, Bealltainn, Beltain, Beltaine, Boaltinn, Boaldyn, Belotenia, Gŵyl Galan Mai) on the calendar they don’t have a beginning of summer, just the middle.

Lets put Bealtaine, Lughnasadh, Samhain, and Imbolc on the calendar.

Summer Solstice (Midsummer, Adonia, St. John’s Feast Day, Līgo, Litha, Ivan Kupala Day, Juhannus, Alban Hefin, Gŵyl Ganol yr Haf) has for ages been been viewed as the middle of summer, not the start, I never understood why, how, when, the calendar people got it wrong.

Hoboken411…Stop telling lies….the sun has no effect on the planet earths weather…It is all controlled by humans and their way of life. Obama “Barry Soetoro” says so and I believe. 😯
