Amount of Sun

Here's another way to look at how much sunshine New Hampshire normally gets. The % Sun numbers measure the percentage of time between sunrise and sunset that sunshine reaches the ground. Again, these amounts are averages based on decades of weather observations.

The Total Hours figures are the average number of sunny hours that a place has each month or in a year, taken from data collected for 1961 to 1990.
