Rate of Change in Daylight Hours

Although we can still expect a lot of winter weather ahead of us, the days are getting noticeably longer.  For example, Toronto will receive 54 more minutes of daylight per day at the end of January as compared to the beginning.  February will add another 1 hour 18 minutes per day.  A welcome change!!

Locations further south already enjoy more daylight than Toronto and their temperatures are warmer, however, they don't receive an increase in the hours of daylight to the extent that Toronto does.  For example, Miami will receive only 26 more minutes of daylight per day at the end of January as compared to the beginning, and February will bring only 38 minutes more.

Cheers, Ralph
