Summer Begins?

Share 

Summer Solstice 
At 4:28 Monday morning the sun reached its northern most point above the earth, the Tropic of Cancer at 23.5° north latitude.  This marked the beginning of astronomical summer. 

The Bay Area sits at 37° degrees north latitude.  The sun's highest angle from the horizon reaches 75.7° during the Summer Solstice. 

Meteorological summer is June, July and August.  These are the three warmest months across the majority of our country. 

If we think in, let's say, logical terms, summer would be the three warmest months.  What you'll find below is the three hottest months for each Bay Area city.  Interesting how so few fall in the three month June, July, August time period.
