WEST MICHIGAN — There's no better way to celebrate the first official day of spring than sunshine and warmer temperatures! The first day of spring is tomorrow, Sunday March 20. It's called the vernal equinox with about 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness, which will occur at exactly 11:33 a.m. Sunday. According to the National Weather Service, there are only two times of the year when the Earth's axis allows for nearly equal amount of daylight and darkness at all latitudes. When this occurs, it is referred to as Equinoxes, which only happens in the spring and fall.
