Annual Days of Sunshine in Spokane
April 1, 2013 3 Comments
The weather this spring is awesome, isn’t it?
But how does Spokane’s weather stand up, by the numbers?
Spokane’s days of sunshine per year (on average) is surprisingly similar to Seattle. Not what many of us might have expected.
Some how, Spokane PR has converted 174 days into 260 days of sunshine, which is not true.
How are those weather terms defined?
- If the sun shines for 70% of the day time or more, its a “Sunny” day.
- If the sun shines for between 21% and 69% of the day, its “Partly Sunny or Partly Cloudy” day. What’s the difference? The sun doesn’t shine at night so we call it “Partly cloudy”.
- If the sun shines for less than 20% of the day, its “Cloudy”.
