What is men't by an" Indian summer", in the scientific sense.

 

Thanks.

It's a spell of fine, warm anticyclonic weather occurring after the first Autumn frosts, usually in the second half of October or the first half of November.

If you want to be PC it should be renamed 'native American' summer

Yes I believe it descends from Indians in north America where they get a period of nice weather quite late in the year whereas here it is 'wrongly' described as a period of summer weather outside of august ..ie September and into October.Some of these notable periods have often come after a poor summer as in 1985 and 1986 and a good one recently 2008 although 2006 was good after a good summer!!!!!
