Today I have come across a sentence that seems quite poor:

Summer is increasing day by day.

The word increasing doesn't seem to be suitable here. Tell me the alternatives for this.

Is it okay to say:

Winter is letting up.

Thank you.

"Winter is letting up" is fine. That means that it is getting less wintry, the weather is less characteristic of winter. You can say "getting more summery day by day", but summery is not as widely accepted as wintry, in my experience. So a safer option might be:

It's feeling more like summer every day.
