Even though temperatures have struggled to improve this month, the amount of daylight keeps growing.

Daylight starting to increase across region

Record set in Dayton for number of measurable snow days in April 

From now through April 30 we will gain about 31 minutes of daylight. That means even on the coldest of spring days, you get those extra hours of daylight after work and school to sneak outside. 

5-Day Forecast

By April 30 the sunset will be at 8:30PM. The days will continue to get longer until the Summer Solstice which is June 21 this year. The latest sunset of summer is 9:08PM! More hours of daylight and the sun's rays becoming more direct over the Miami Valley help our temperatures to trend out of cold season and into spring.
