Seasonal Benchmark

The Baltimore area hits a seasonal benchmark today. The sun sets before 5:00pm for the first time since January 6. Not counting twilight, the area will receive only 10 hours and 18 minutes of sunlight today. The earliest sunsets will occur between December 2 through 11 when darkness sets in at 4:43 each evening.

Speaking of benchmarks, the graphic below shows what the meteorological statistical averages and extremes are for this date.
