Since the beginning of the year, gray and cloudy weather has occupied the skies of Lyon. The cold has settled in permanently and the sun is losing subscribers.

So much so that, on social networks, some Lyonns began to worry about this disappearance.

7 minutes of sun

According to data from the Massif Alpine Meteorological Observation Network (ROMMA), between New Year’s Day and January 6, only 7 minutes of sunshine were recorded at Lyon station, on January 1.

For comparison, 13 hours and 4 minutes of sunshine were recorded on January 6, 2020 and 16 hours and 9 minutes on January 6, 2019.

Note that other cities are affected by this phenomenon of insufficient sunlight, such as Chambéry, Grenoble and Colmar.

A shy return

Fortunately, this Thursday in Lyon, some solar rays have managed to penetrate the gloomy floor and the ROMMA network shows 1h30 of sun on January 7 at 2:00 p.m.

For clearer clarifications, it will be necessary to wait this weekend, and more especially Sunday, according to the data published by the meteonews site.
