ACNH Summer (June, July, August) Weather & Scenery Changes

In Northern Hemisphere, Summer starts on June 1st and till to the end of August. During these three months, the moment that you leave your house in the afternoon, evening, and night, you can hear the cicadas chirping and beetles buzzing, adding a whole new chorus to the game’s hourly music and making the game’s connection to nature feel even more powerful. The skies are clearer than ever making every day and night feel open with possibilities and wonder, and on summer days after the rain, you can often see beautiful rainbows hanging in the seaside sky. 

While in Southern Hemisphere, Winter starts from May 26th and lasts until August 24th. During this period, cloudy and snowy days will consist mainly.  Snow covers your island and snowflakes float around in the air.
