When Does Mid-Afternoon Start?

The word “mid-afternoon” refers to the roughly midpoint of the time between 12 p.m. and sunset but is not an exact measurement of time. There is no one specific moment that can be described as mid-afternoon because the sun sets at different times throughout the year and at different latitudes across the globe.

If an elderly lady requests that her maid clean the kitchen in the middle of the afternoon, a common rule is established that the maid should clean the kitchen somewhere between midday and dusk. Mid-afternoon would be at around 3 p.m. if “afternoon” time is defined as lasting from roughly 12:01 p.m. to 6 p.m.
