Summer is one of the four temperate seasons
"marked by the warmest time of year with the longest days, and lies between spring and autumn. The seasons are popularly considered to start on different dates in different cultures based on astronomy and regional meteorology. When it is summer in the southern hemisphere it is winter in the northern hemisphere, and vice versa. In areas of the tropics and subtropics, the wet season occurs during the summer. Tropical cyclones develop and roam the tropical and subtropical oceans during the summer. In the interior of continents, thunderstorms are most likely to produce hail during the afternoon and evening hours. In hotter areas, ceiling fans and Air Conditioning are often used in summer.

Those in construction take advantage of the warmer weather to lay concrete, which cures more quickly in the warmer weather. School has a designed summer break, so children can take advantage of the warmer weather and longer days. People tend to play sports more outdoors during the warmer weather, and indulge in other activities such as picnicking."

Summer starts on these dates  /  Month of: June
6/21/09, 6/21/10, 6/21/11, 6/20/12, 6/21/13, 6/21/14, 6/21/15, 6/20/16, 6/21/17, 6/21/18, 6/21/19, 6/20/20

"The wet season occurs during summer across the tropics and subtropics. Where the wet season is associated with a seasonal shift in the prevailing winds, it is known as a monsoon. The wet season is the main period of vegetation growth within the savanna climate regime. However, this also means that wet season is a time for food shortages before crops reach their full maturity. This causes seasonal weight changes for people in developing countries, with a drop occurring during the wet season until the time of the first harvest, when weights rebound. Malaria incidence increases during periods of high temperature and heavy rainfall."

"Cows calve, or give birth, at the beginning of the wet season. The onset of the rainy season signals the departure of the Monarch butterfly from Mexico. Tropical species of butterflies show larger dot markings on their wings to fend off possible predators and are more active during the wet season than the dry season. Within the tropics and warmer areas of the subtropics, decreased salinity of near shore wetlands due to the rains causes an increase in crocodile nesting. Other species, such as the arroyo toad, spawn within the couple months after the seasonal rains. Armadillos and rattlesnakes seek higher ground."

"In the Northern Atlantic Ocean, a distinct tropical cyclone season occurs from June 1 to November 30, sharply peaking from late August through September. The statistical peak of the Atlantic hurricane season is 10 September. The Northeast Pacific Ocean has a broader period of activity, but in a similar time frame to the Atlantic. The Northwest Pacific sees tropical cyclones year-round, with a minimum in February and March and a peak in early September. In the North Indian basin, storms are most common from April to December, with peaks in May and November. In the Southern Hemisphere, the tropical cyclone year begins on July 1 and runs all year round and encompasses the tropical cyclone seasons which run from November 1 until the end of April with peaks in mid-February to early March."

"Across interior North America, cumulonimbus clouds produce hail between the months of March and October during the afternoon and evening hours, with the bulk of the occurrences from May through September. Cheyenne, Wyoming is North America's most hail-prone city with an average of nine to ten hailstorms per season."

School break
"In most countries children are out of school during this time of year for summer holidays, although dates vary. In the Northern hemisphere, some begin as early as mid-May, although in England and Wales, school ends in mid- to late July. In the Southern hemisphere, school holiday dates include the major holidays of Christmas and New Year's Day. Summer school holidays in Australia begin a few weeks before Christmas and end in late January to mid-February, with the dates varying in different states."

Summer Vacations
Most students see summer as a time to relax, and 'forget' about school, spending time being recreational, or taking vacations.

Summer is usually the time when school for students and teachers are out for break. It usually lasts for about 3 months, or mid-June to early September.

Because schools let out in the summer, the summer season is common for travel, such as road trips and family vacations.

Summer time is also very popular for grilling BBQ outside and enjoying the company of friends family and neighbors.

"People take advantage of the warmer temperatures by spending more time outdoors during the summer. Activities such as travelling to the beach and picnics occur during summer months. Sports such as volleyball, baseball, softball, soccer, tennis, and football are played. Water skiing is a uniquely summer sport, which is done when waters approach their warmest of the year."
