What is the hottest part of the day?

    The hottest part of the day is in the mid afternoon, like between 2-4, depending on what season it is. The ground cools during the night time and so all morning the sun is reheating the ground. The sun reaches peak strength at around 1, and by then the ground has heated back up all the way, so there’s maximum heat coming from the sky, and maximum heat bouncing off the ground (especially surfaces that absorb heat like asphalt). This lasts until the sun begins to decline and the earth begins to cool off again in the evening.

    This time of year, with plenty of sunlight during the days, the hottest part of a sunny day is usually mid- to late afternoon, somewhere between 3:00 and 5:00 PM. As the days get shorter in the winter months, this time will shift earlier, to around 1:00 to 2:00 PM. Even though the sun is strongest around noon, the absorption of solar radiation continues to warm the earth and the atmosphere even after the sun has passed its highest point and is starting to set.
