Across the North, more and more sunlight is seen each day in January after the winter solstice in December. The temperature was -18 C when this picture was taken at about 8:30 a.m Jan. 6. This Friday, the forecast calls for a high of -24 C and the sunrise in Kuujjuaq is occurring a bit before 8:15 a.m., according to Environment and Climate Change Canada.
