All of Australia enjoys warm and balmy weather, but the number of hours of sunshine in winter can vary greatly. This FACT indicates the number of winter sunshine hours per day in each of Australia's capital cities. The numbers are influenced by numerous factors, including climate and daylight savings hours. In fact, the length of the days (influenced by geographical location and distance from the equator) has a strong impact on winter sunshine hours, rather than overcast skies or wet weather. The city with the highest winter sunshine hours per day (2011) is Brisbane with 7and the lowest is Melbourne with 4. Data for Darwin and Hobart could not be obtained.
