CLEVELAND — Americans will lose 1-3 minutes of daylight per day throughout the month of October, helping us to cool down as we head towards winter. 


Daylight is dependent on latitude. States farther north will lose more daylight in the fall compared to states in the south. That's a big reason as to why northern states will get colder, faster as we push towards the winter season. In addition, the amount of daylight lost accelerates more towards the north so the bands you see with timetables decrease in area coverage.

Every band with a different color shows how much a location will at least lose. For example, Cleveland, Ohio will lose 1 hour and 19 minutes of daylight from October 1st to October 31st, thus they are in the "1 HR 15 MIN" range. 


Sunsets will eventually take place before 7 PM in NE Ohio!
