Today marks the first day of Spring!  In honor of the warmer weather, here are a few facts about Spring:

  • In the Northern Hemisphere, Spring usually occurs during the months of March, April, May, or from the Vernal Equinox (March 20) to the Summer Solstice (June 21). The opposite is true for the Southern Hemisphere.

 

  • The first day of spring is also called the vernal equinox where there is supposed to be 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.

 

  • In spring, the Earth’s axis is tilted toward the sun, increasing the number of daylight hours and bringing warmer weather.

 

  • Severe weather most often occurs during the spring, when warm air begins to move up from the lower latitudes and cold air pushes down from the polar regions.

 

  • Spring weather will be varied with some days cold enough to snow, and some days warm enough to play out in the garden. The spring months can also be awfully windy.
