I guess it depends where you are.  In Cumbria, we have a warm wet season and a cold wet season.

You only get the four seasons in the US.

That only applies in the vallies. What about the Blue Ridge Mountains? Is it dry there?

In answer to your question, kierae0608, the seasons certainly seem to be not so well defined as they used to be. Changes in the course of the Gulf Stream and Jet Stream seem to be playing havoc with our weather.
