Spring Arrives In Minnesota 20 Mar 13

The sunrises in Minnesota will begin arriving earlier, and the sunsets will come later now that Spring has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere. The Vernal Equinox took place at 6:02am today (WED), and our days will now begin getting longer. At the exact moment of the Equinox, if you were observing the Earth from space you would see the sunrise or sunset line cutting the planet in half vertically, from pole to pole. It may not feel very springlike in Minnesota today, but on this day last year the high temperature in New Ulm was 79-degrees.
