Expect Shorter Days and Colder Weather This December 2021


People have enjoyed an additional hour of sleep. Thanks to the end of Daylight Saving Time, they have adjusted their clocks one hour backward.

But, the end of the biannual tradition does not only mean more sleep because people have to expect shorter days and earlier sunsets. Not only that, but this December 2021, there will be colder days as winter is about to start.

Here in Washington, people notice that sunsets get even earlier. In Pasco, the sun sets around 4:10/4:11 p.m. every day, and this continues to happen every Wednesday until the Winter Solstice of this year arrives.

But when does the Winter Solstice occur this year? Here at Pasco, Winter Solstice will happen at precisely 7:58 a.m. on Tuesday, December 21.

If you like colder months, you have to enjoy each day of December until January. This is because, on February 1, 2022, the days will slowly start getting longer again.

Take note that sunrise and sunset times vary by a few minutes across every region. Suppose you want to know about the specific sunrise and sunset times, you can check the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s website, where you can enter your particular latitude and longitude.
