As the days keep getting shorter, maybe you're wondering when the shortest day of the year will be in Chicago.
According to the website Sunrise-Sunset, the city of Chicago will have 10 hours and one minute of sunlight on Friday, but that will be the final time this calendar year that we will exceed that threshold as days will continue to get shorter through the winter solstice.
In fact, the next time the city of Chicago will have more than 10 hours of sunlight won’t be until Jan. 30.
Now that you’ve been hit with one dose of harsh reality about the impending winter, here’s another. According to the website, Chicago is rapidly approaching the date where it will have its earliest sunset of the year.
This year, that date falls on Dec. 8, when the sun goes down at exactly 4:21 p.m. After that, sunset will slowly begin to occur later, taking eight full days to gain an extra minute.
Dang. Going to start mentally preparing now. Lol.
