I posted this question before, possibly even on these boards. But that is irrelevant. Because I apparently posted it the wrong way.
I asked what was the hottest day of the year. And some wiseacre replied it is the day of the year with the hottest temperature.
So you see why I doubt I posted it here. SDMB members usually are more polite (if that is the right word).
Put a better way, what is the hottest AVERAGE day of the year? And why is it so? When does the summer season really begin?
Astronomically, the summer begins on the summer solstice. But where I live (Detroit), weathermen claim it begins on June 1st. I actually have been watching the weather forecast for a little while now. And they usually give the average for the day.
FWIW, the temperature averages are steadily going down now. That process seemed to begin around July 20th, which has me even more confused. If the meteorological summer begins June 1st, the dead center of the season would be July 15th or thereabouts, wouldn’t it?
Thank you in advance for all your helpful replies:).
