Could this be Alabama’s hottest summer yet?

Is it summer yet?

The grand arrival of summer can be celebrated in different ways!

Summer, in its meteorological form, begins on June 1 and provides a sunny atmosphere that lasts throughout August. On the other hand, astronomical summer, which depends on equinoxes and solstices, officially begins on Thursday, June 20 at 3:51 PM.

3:51 PM The start time of summer is the “earliest start in 128 years,” according to the Farmer’s Almanac.

If you ask an Alabamian, they might say summer started last month because we’ve already experienced hot, sultry, summer-like temperatures.
