SNOW and freezing temperatures have already hit some areas, which has called the start of the Winter season into question.
Most people associate the Winter season with cold and icy weather.
Is Winter already here?
The weather forecasts differ and always depends on what area you are in.
However, some places have already started experiencing snowfall and snowstorms.
It may feel like Winter is already upon residents in some areas due to the snow arriving.
The changing weather reports across different areas have caused many people to wonder if Fall is already over and Winter has started.
When is the start of Winter?
The 2021 Fall season officially began with the Autumn Equinox which occurred on September 22.
Although people may experience a change of weather towards the end of August, the Autumn Equinox is the time that signifies when Fall officially arrives.
The Fall season is over when the Winter Solstice happens.
The 2021 Winter Solstice will indicate the seasonal turnover on Tuesday, December 21.
When will Winter be over?
When people are looking for the Winter season to be officially over, they can look forward to the Spring Equinox, which will mark the start of the Spring season.
The Summer Solstice will then signify that the Spring time has come to an end and hot and sunny Summer weather will be present until the next seasonal change.
Remembering the seasonal equinoxes and solstices are the key to knowing which time of year you are in.
Although a lot of territories experience differing weather conditions prior to the solstices and equinoxes, the dates are significant to know the official starts of the four seasons.
