What Time Is Mid-Afternoon?

Midafternoon is not an exact time measurement, but rather a nebulous expression for the approximate centre of the time between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. and sunset. Due to the fact that the sun sets at different times throughout the year and at different latitudes around the globe, there is no exact moment that can be described as midafternoon.

If an elderly lady asks her maid to clean the kitchen in the middle of the day, a common rule is established that the kitchen should be cleaned between noon and dusk. If “afternoon” is deemed to begin at approximately 12:01 p.m. to 6 p.m., for instance, midafternoon would be approximately 3 p.m.
