You mentioned transitioning to a Spring pattern next month. Would you briefly expand on that situation.

ANSWER

Though it sounds early–it actually is not; the transition occurs because of greater sunlight and a higher sun angle; this precedes substantial surface warming by a few weeks–just as transitioning into a Fall pattern starts in mid-August–before we notice much change down here on the ground. The reason for the delay: the slowness of ground to respond with higher
temperatures to incresed sunlight, and vice-versa for the Fall transition. We call that characteristic “specific heat”.
