By the meteorological calendar, spring starts on 1 March. The seasons are defined as Spring (March, April, May), Summer (June, July, August), Autumn (September, October, November) and Winter (December, January, February).
Similarly, it is asked, how many months are there in summer season?
A meteorological season is defined as the 12 months of the year being divided up into four season with three months each, according to NOAA. June, July and August are considered summer, north of the equator, and December, January and February are summer to the south.
How many days are there for summer?
Summer 2018 begins on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 10:07 UTC (06:07 am EDT, 05:07 am CDT, 04:07 am MDT, and 03:07 am PDT). The total duration of summer 2018 is 93 days, 15 hours, and 47 minutes.
According to the meteorological definition, the seasons begin on the first day of the months that include the equinoxes and solstices:
- Spring runs from March 1 to May 31;
- Summer runs from June 1 to August 31;
- Fall (autumn) runs from September 1 to November 30; and.
In the United States and the rest of the northern hemisphere, the first day of the summer season is the day of the year when the Sun is farthest north (on June 20th or 21st). This day is known as the Summer Solstice.
The Met Office says 1 June, as it defines summer as the calendar months of June, July and August. But in many northern cultures the seasons are divided by the two spring and autumn equinoxes and the summer and winter solstices.
Traditionally, Indians note six seasons or Ritu, each about two months long. These are the spring season (Sanskrit: vasanta), summer (grī?ma), monsoon season (var?ā), autumn (śarada), winter (hemanta), and prevernal season (śiśira). These are based on the astronomical division of the twelve months into six parts.
The meteorological convention is to define summer as comprising the months of June, July, and August in the northern hemisphere and the months of December, January, and February in the southern hemisphere. However, according to the Irish Calendar, summer begins on 1 May and ends on 1 August.
The Basics. To break things down for you, each of Australia's seasons comprise of three full months per season. Each season begins on the first day of the calendar month, so summer is from December 1 to the end of February, autumn from March to May, winter from June to August, and spring from September to November.
The four seasons — winter, spring, summer, autumn — can vary significantly in characteristics, and can prompt changes in the world around them.
Southern Florida has an excellent climate for mangos, wet in the summer and dry in winter. July, August, and September are in the hot, wet season. School and university vacation is mostly from early June until the middle of August (or sometimes late August).
Most of Northeast India and much of North India are subject to a humid subtropical climate. Though they experience hot summers, temperatures during the coldest months may fall as low as 0 °C (32 °F). Due to ample monsoon rains, India has only one subtype of this climate under the Köppen system: Cwa.
In Australia, the seasons are defined by grouping the calendar months in the following way:
- Spring - the three transition months September, October and November.
- Summer - the three hottest months December, January and February.
- Autumn - the transition months March, April and May.
Summer school classes are often shorter than regular classes (often 6-8 weeks long, compared to a whole semester), so they are usually more intensive and require a greater time commitment.
Meteorologists (and most of the temperate countries in the southern hemisphere) use a definition based on Gregorian calendar months, with autumn being September, October, and November in the northern hemisphere, and March, April, and May in the southern hemisphere.
Astronomically, it begins on the Vernal Equinox, which is on or around March 21st, and ends on the Summer Solstice, on or about June 21st. Then there is Meteorological Spring, which begins on March 1st and ends on May 31st.

Officially spring is during the months of March, April and May in China. Summer is from June through to August. Autumn is during the months of September, October and November and winter is from December to February.
The seasons are caused by the tilt of the Earth's rotational axis away or toward the sun as it travels through its year-long path around the sun. The Earth has a tilt of 23.5 degrees relative to the "ecliptic plane" (the imaginary surface formed by it's almost-cicular path around the sun).
In temperate and subpolar regions, four calendar-based seasons are generally recognized: spring, summer, autumn or fall, and winter. Ecologists often use a six-season model for temperate climate regions: prevernal, vernal, estival, serotinal, autumnal, and hibernal.
The start of the summer vacation for middle schools and high schools is on June 20 and the end is August 31 (two months and 10 days) and the summer vacation for primary schools and kindergartens start on July 1 and ends on August 31 (two months).
Summer in Florida extends from May to September, when it's hot and very humid throughout the state. If you're in an inland city during these months, you may not want to do anything too taxing when the sun is at its peak. Coastal areas, however, reap the benefits of sea breezes.
