FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — When you think of April you probably think of warmth and rain.
It also means more sunlight!
We all need a little more time for sunshine across the Midwest.
So far this year, 60 percent of the days have been mostly cloudy or overcast.
Bring on that sunshine.
This month, we will continue to gain more than two minutes of daylight each day.
April 1 we had a sunrise time of 7:23 a.m. and a sunset time of 8:06 p.m.
By April 30 we will add approximately 74 extra minutes of daylight.
Sunrise time will be 6:39 a.m. and the sunset will be 8:37 p.m.
By the end of the month, we will be 51 days away from the first day of summer.
The start of summer, June 20, will be the longest day of the year.
We’ll have a sunrise at 6:08 a.m. and a sunset at 9:16 p.m. which will be 15 hours and 8 minutes of daylight.
