Baltimore marks earliest sunsets of the winter

Good news for those missing the sunshine: We have already reached the earliest sunsets of the year in Baltimore, even though the winter solstice is still almost two weeks away.

The sun sets at 4:43 p.m. today, as it has for the past several days and the next few days. But it has started shifting ever so slightly later already, reaching 4:47 p.m. by the solstice Dec. 21.

Sunrises meanwhile continue getting later until early January.
