The 2024 spring equinox will occur at exactly 11:06 p.m. EDT on Tuesday. But why does the day mark the start of spring and why only in the Northern Hemisphere? 

Spring has almost sprung; The vernal equinox, the official start date for the season in the Northern Hemisphere, arrives on Tuesday, March 19.

Typically, it occurs on March 19, 20, or 21. According to the Farmer's Almanac, a spring equinox on March 21 is unusual. For the entire 21st century, there hasn't been one in the continental United States, and that number won't rise until 2101.

An equinox is what? The vernal and autumnal equinoxes are the only two that occur annually. They produce almost equal amounts of day and night in a 24-hour period when the sun is directly overhead at noon. The Latin terms aequus and nox, which mean equal night, are the source of the word equinox itself.

What distinguishes meteorological spring from the spring equinox? Although March 19 is the date of the 2024 vernal equinox, meteorological spring really arrived at the beginning of the month. Meteorological and astronomical seasons are the two categories of seasons identified by NASA.

The National Centers for Environmental Information state that a calendar year is 365 days, although Earth travels around the sun every 365.24 days, which is one reason why the date varies.

Meteorological spring occurs annually between March 1 and May 31.    The tilt of Earth's axis and the planet's location throughout its orbit around the sun determine the astronomical seasons.

Based on the annual temperature cycle, meteorological seasons are based on calendar dates. Three-month intervals make up the meteorological seasons.

In the Southern Hemisphere, the March equinox will bring later sunrises, earlier sunsets, colder winds, and dry, dropping leaves. In contrast, Tuesday's equinox in the Northern Hempisphere will bring with it later sunsets, earlier sunrises, milder winds, and sprouting plants.

When does the Southern Hemisphere's springtime begin? September is the start of spring in the Southern Hemisphere and the start of fall in the Northern Hemisphere.

The Persian or Iranian New Year, Nowruz, falls on the spring equinox. According to the United Nations, it has been seen for over 3,000 years throughout the Middle East, Central Asia, the Caucasus, the Black Sea Basin, the Balkans, and other locations.
