Today is the last day of spring for Middle TN.
Even though we’ve felt like summer for several weeks now, it doesn’t officially begin until Thursday at 5:07AM.
What’s fun about the summer solstice is the day before and the day summer begins.
The reason is because it’s the two longest days of the year.
Today and tomorrow Middle TN will see 14 hours 37 minutes and 19 seconds of daylight.
The Winter Solstice (first day of winter) on December 21st is when we see the shortest amount of daylight in the day.
On that day we will see 9 hours 41 minutes 54 seconds of daylight.
Beginning Friday our amount of daylight during the days will decrease.
It’s a slow decrease in daylight hours but over several months it’s mind blowing how much light we lose.
Here’s a look at the sunset times for the next few weeks.
Notice how soon sunset is once we get to September and especially Daylight Saving Time in November.
