The good news for sun deprived Minnesotans?
Winters trend sunnier historically as we move forward.
We’re moving past the cloudiest time of the year, on average, in Minnesota. November is the cloudiest month of the year historically with just 39 percent of possible sunshine on average. December sunshine run 42 percent, with January at 53 percent.
By the time we get to February 59 percent of all daylight hours are sunny historically.
Progress. Hope. Optimism.
