Weather Tidbits: Winter Solstice
The winter solstice takes center stage in this Weather Tidbits. The winter solstice happens in the Northern Hemisphere, when the sun reaches the most south over the Tropic of Capricorn. This leads to the shortest day and longest night of the year; with the lowest angle in the sky. The Southern Hemisphere experiences its summer solstice in December, with the opposite effect of its northerly counterparts.
