Compass – The winter season this year begins on Thursday (December 22, 2022), and ends on Tuesday (March 21, 2023), so that it lasts 89 days.
The beginning of the astronomical winter season is considered the official start for it, and the astronomical beginning of the seasons is determined by the inclination of the earth’s axis during its rotation around the sun, which leads to the two halves of the earth receiving a different amount of solar radiation, so that either half of the earth tilts towards the sun and the season is summer, or it tilts away from the sun. And the season is winter.
The beginning of winter in meteorology
According to the meteorological calendar, the first day of winter is always December 1, and ends on February 30, meaning that the winter season in meteorology extends for 3 months: December, January, and February.
Meteorological seasons are derived by dividing the year into four periods, each of which extends for three months. These seasons are divided to coincide with the beginning of the months, which facilitates the monitoring and forecasting process and the comparison of seasonal and monthly statistics.
