The 20th/21st day of March is the beginning of Spring, the Spring Equinox (or thereabouts), that point in the Earth’s orbit around the Sun where we have equal hours of daylight and night for both the northern and southern hemispheres. Of course it marks the Autumnal Equinox for the southern hemisphere, the beginning of their Autumn. The 21st might mark the official start of the season but I wonder when it will begin to show itself in terms of temperature rises and more sunshine? It is something to look forward to in any case. In the meantime the forecast is for SNOW on Friday!
