Have you noticed that the sun is setting at a later time? Here is what we can expect in Feb and March.

Good morning, the temperature is 27 and right now at 7:30 AM I can see the sun with very few clouds. Weather man said the clouds will move in. That 27 degrees in our normal high for this time of year. We are to have temperatures in at 40 degrees. It is still very mild and enjoyable.
Have you noticed that we are having more daylight? Found this article interesting to consider what we will gain in Feb. and what will happen in March with our increase sunlight. Spring will come I promise.
. Enjoy the increasing daylight—only a minute per day (soon two)
Speaking of chill, the most obvious and life-affecting winter change these days is in the length of daylight. We had our earliest sunset (darkest afternoon) on December 7, and then saw our darkest morning (latest sunrise) during the first week of January.
How it all fits together to deliver hours and minutes of daylight boils down to the very darkest day being the recent solstice on December 21.
The increase in sunlight was just a few seconds per day at first. In late January, the gain in daylight reached more than a minute per day.
But it’s now changing quickly. In just a few weeks, we’ll be gaining over two minutes of daylight each day!
When it reaches three minutes per day by the end of February, it’ll remain glued to that same rapid sunshine-growth right through April.
And that’s the visible change the greatest number of us will be aware of. We won’t even care when June and July glue that darkness/daylight ratio in place so that, until late in summer, there’s barely any further change to observe.
