During the day Wednesday will be the shortest day of the year and a length of 10 hours and 13 minutes
The winter solstice will occur Wednesday was also; where the sun's rays fall perpendicular to the Tropic of Capricorn and the tendency to be very northern hemisphere and almost perpendicular to the southern half with the exception of the Tropic of Capricorn and at least the length of the day for the length of the night in the northern hemisphere.
Low temperature in winter is the result of two main reasons: first the fall of the sun on the Earth's surface and its tendency maximum for perpendicular to the surface of the earth; as the X-ray oblique less heat from the rays of vertical as it penetrates a longer distance in the air, making it subject to a lot of reflection on the Drag-and-gas absorption by the atmosphere, as they spread over a larger area which reduces the intensity.
. The second reason for low temperature in winter is the length of the night and the Palace of the day, the short daylight meant that there was less chance to acquire the thermal energy from the sun, and night means a longer time to loss of energy to outer space by the Earth's radiation.
