I’ve been working on this idea for a local season calendar for maybe a year or two now, musing on it in the back of my head:

Dry Fall (Sept-Oct)
Wet Fall (Nov-early Dec)
Icy Winter (late Dec-Jan)
Wet Winter (Feb – early Mar)
Cold Spring (late Mar – Apr)
Warm Spring (May – early June)
Pre-Summer (late June-early July)
True Summer (late July – August)

I think it captures some of the nuances that people miss and forget around here. (Like the fact that we’ve gotten quite a bit of sun lately, and it’s not really that unusual. Icy Winter often features very cold sunny days.)

One of these days I’ll get around to elaborating on it some more.
