Seasonal Weather Patterns

Year 9

Autumn

Boreas: The summer seems determined to hang on as long as possible. Sunny days and mild temperatures define this autumn across most of Boreas, especially pleasant after the humidity of the summer. The abundant moisture means that this year's leaves will be particularly colorful as autumn progresses. There is still a lot of rain but it tends to be a soft, gentle mist rather than storms. In the far north, temperatures drop much more rapidly, and summer's copious precipitation continues in the form of early snows. While the snow won't stick until much later in the season, mornings will often find everything covered in beautiful white hoarfrost.

Auster: As spring comes to the southern continent, it brings with it warmer temperatures and a slow decrease in the rains. Morning fogs continue to be common, but they're burned off quickly by the bright sunshine. Mild temperatures, near-constant sunshine, and gentle rains encourage an explosion of herb and flower growth: a healer's paradise! Unfortunately, it's also the start of the season for tropical cyclones...

Winter

Year 10

Spring

Boreas:: As spring arrives once again, winter seems reluctant to leave. Gentle snows continue for much of early spring, heavier in the northern lands but still noticable as you move further south. Even the west experiences slightly colder temperatures than usual, with rain happening more frequently there than usual. You may even see a tornado or two in these lands as the weather becomes more erratic - beware! Luckily, late spring will give way to much milder, temperate weather.

Auster: Thankfully for this continent the shift in season brings welcome relief from the drought that had been plaguing the lands. Gentle rains are more common, foliage slowly coming back to life as the weather improves. Expect heavy fog to accompany the rain, and high humidity to often follow after showers. Be cautious near bodies of water, since flash floods are likely early in the season!

Summer

Not recorded

Autumn

Boreas:: The autumn weather has taken a turn for the dark and spooky. More often than not the skies are cloudy and gray, with a constant rumble of distant thunder. There's a chill in the air. Many mornings show a hint of ice around the edges of small streams and ponds, and grasses and leaves are occasionally rimed with frost. Most lands are windy and dreary, and storms are fairly common everywhere. Worst, and spookiest of all, thick fogs often cling everywhere well past noon, and some lands never seem to lose those disorienting fogs at all this season.

Auster: Despite the fact that the dry season should be starting, Auster's rainy season seems to be only deepening. Much like the northern continent, dark skies and windy weather seem to have Auster in it's grip. The grumble of thunder and faint flashes of lightning constantly play over the gloomy skies and the faintly spooky mists wreathing the lands. At least, unlike the north, Auster's temperatures are remaining fairly mild, neither too hot nor too cold in spite of the constant wind and frequent storms. The rain from the storms rarely sticks around long, but the wind and lightning rage far longer. It's an odd start to the dry season, that's for sure. At least there's plenty of water!

Winter

Boreas: The weather of this season is no less turbulent than the previous one - snow is frequent and heavy, especially in the northern lands. Expect frequent blizzards and the heavy, wet snowfall that these storms bring can be quite dangerous. Avalanches are growing increasingly more common and the heavy weight of the snow threatens to topple over trees, so be cautious when traveling in unfamiliar terrain!

Auster: Compared to Auster's last season, the weather has mellowed out considerably with hot and humid weather. There are still a few lingering thunderstorms at the beginning of the season, but nothing as severe as the floods that plagued the lands in Autumn. The continent is booming with fresh flora that is perfect for any healers looking to gather herbs. As the season wears on a dry spell will take effect where no rain falls at all so healers better take advantage of the flora before they wilt!

Year 11

Spring

Boreas: Despite the previous winter being a relatively rough one, to the relief of wolves everywhere Spring has arrived in full force. The temperatures are unusually warm, and with the snow rapidly melting many lands, particularly in central Boreas, will seem unusually and uncomfortably muddy! Rain will be frequent all around, with thunderstorms growing increasingly common as spring turns to summer. Let's hope that so much rain will precede a fertile summer season!

Auster: The temperatures start to drop slightly as the driest time of the year fades away - nights may be uncomfortably cold sometimes compared to Auster's usually mild standards, though overall this season will be unremarkable. Lands near the ocean might experience more frequent storms, with tsunamis ravaging the continent's eastern coast far more frequently than usual - beware!

Summer

Not recorded

Autumn Boreas: Autumn is showing signs of being mild this year. The temperature is definitely edging towards the cool side, and the more northern of the lands will find frost on the ground when they wake in the morning. Still, sunny days will continue for most of the season, and you won't see a good hard freeze in the three southernmost regions this season. There will be few rains but they will be gentle and not inclined to linger. It is a good time for predators to fatten their larders for winter, as the prey animals will be making the most of the continued plant growth.

Auster: Things are heating up as the rainy season passes into the annual dry season. It is already hot, and flora and fauna both are beginning to show its effects, with the vegetation beginning to look somewhat wilted and the animals - prey and predator alike - are starting to grow increasingly cantankerous with the heat. Gnats and mosquitoes seem to be more profuse this year than usual as well, adding to the annoyance. The rains seem to have stopped early this year, which does not bode well for next season...

Winter

Boreas: The mild autumn has come to an abrupt end as snow begins to fall early and thickly. The temperatures will drop quickly and within the first month of winter they will be hovering somewhere below zero in most places. Even the desert lands are unusually cold this year, though the deep deserts won't likely see snow. Blizzards will be common this year, with the north seeing almost constant snowfall between storms. Storms can come up rapidly, so travelers should be wary about being caught out.

Auster: The dry season has started with a vengeance. River and lake levels have dropped dramatically, and many smaller rivers and streams have dried up completely. Prey animals are desperately thirsty. Many have died - good for scavengers, not so much for the prey. Predators and prey alike gather near the remaining water sources and it isn't uncommon now to see a blackbuck drinking beside a jaguar, both too thirsty to bother with the other. Vegetation is extremely dry. Expect wildfires to be a major concern this season.

Year 12

Spring

Boreas: The relatively harsh winter has finally subsided, giving way to a surprisingly pleasant spring. While some of the cold weather seems intent on remaining, causing cold nights, most days are sunny and pleasant. Already it seems to be a quite fertile year, with many herbs and plants blooming earlier than usual this year. Beware, though, as not everything is perfect - the snow rapidly melting has led to muddy lands, and lakes and bodies overflowing and causing rivers to be far more dangerous than usual. Another thing to note is that small earthquakes have been experienced more freqently near the central lands of Boreas. Some wolves believe this might be a sign of a change in the lands, and fear that something worse might be brewing..

Auster: Fall in Auster brings a welcome relief to drought-addled lands, with rainstorms wracking the continent, much more frequently than its inhabitants are used to. In addition, the ocean levels are significantly higher than usual and monsoons are a concern. Overall the temperatures are much more pleasant than usual, though the rain is quite a damper to an otherwise nice season.

Summer

Boreas: The arrival of summer makes the already quite fertile continent even more lucious. The relatively heavy rains brought on during spring have made herbs significantly more abundant. The storms seem more intense and frequent than the ones the previous season, often bringing dangerous winds and even an unusual number of lightning storms, particularly near the East. Even the North is seeing this warm, humid weather, and freezing temperatures are all but nonexistent in the lower to middle areas of the northern lands. Beware of the coast, though, in particular the Eastern shores - the tides seem even higher and more unpredictable than usual, and being dragged out to sea is a very real danger.

Auster: The season change brings with it rapidly worsening conditions in Auster. It is even clearer now that the water levels are rising, leading to unusually high tides and high incidences of tsunamis. Expect flooding around coastlines, rivers, and other bodies of water to intensify as the season goes on.

Year 14

Spring

As Spring arrives, the bitter winter experienced across all of Boreas seems to fade quickly. This season will be overall a temperate one, only the North seeing any snow at all throughout the season. The East in particular will experience a relatively rainy season, though besides a few thunderstorms the weather is overall quite pleasant.

As Auster moves into its cold season, things will remain relatively temperate across the southern continent. Though the season will be an unusually rainy one, there is little else remarkable to note, save for a few bitterly chilly nights.
