When Does Spring Begin?

SEATTLE - According to the world clock, which uses the old Greenwich Mean Time, spring officially begins March 20th at 6:49 a.m.

But Seattle is 8 hours behind GMT, so spring for us actually begins tonight at 10:49. That means half the country (the Eastern and Central Time Zones) start spring on March 20, but the western time zones get to think about spring a day earlier, so to speak.

If you'd like to get a head start on the other seasons of the year, plan on a summer dinner picnic, as summer will begin on June 20th at 5:57 p.m. The leaves will start their turn on Sept. 22 at 9:30 a.m. with the start of fall.

And for those who love snow and are already looking forward to next winter, that begins on Dec. 21 at 4:42 a.m.

Photo taken on 01-20-2015. My brother and I decided to get out of the house and go stretch our legs at picnic Park in Seattle and we were sitting on the shore watching the sun start to set and we saw the Seahawks logo appear over the Puget Sound and I started photographing it.
