When is the end of Summer and when will it actually FEEL like Autumn?

Just when it feels like Summer has just begun, you turn around to see the kids are back in school and the stores already adorned with Halloween decor. But’s STILL August, it’s STILL hot and now our brains are trying to tell us it’s about to be Fall? So when is the end of Summer and when will it actually feel like Autumn? 

We still have about a month to go before Summer ends, you can count the days down to the second on this handy website. The Autumn Equinox takes place on September 22nd, that’s when the Sun crosses the celestial equator. 

Don’t get out your boots and pumpkin lattes just yet; we live in Florida remember? It takes us a few weeks to catch up with the rest of the country when it comes to cooling down.

In Florida, even though it says Autumn on the calendar we might not feel the cooler weather until late October or late November. Not only that, hurricane season winds down a few days after you’ve devoured your Thanksgiving turkey. 

Fortunately the rainy season in Florida comes to an end in the last part of October, so we can look forward to cooler and dry weather. 

Of course at Michele’s Hide-A-way Screens we recommend enjoying a breezy afternoon behind a retractable screen in any weather, especially since unfortunately for us, like the heat, the mosquitoes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon either.
