We have a NE facing apartment at a similar latitude and it's quite a difference. Plants on my in-set balcony get no direct sun near the winter solstice. Six months later they get direct sun from sunrise until ~11:00 am and it heats up to 10 above the daily high from the local weather station by 10:00 am.

If you're in a new place suncalc.org might be a useful tool.

Woah. That's so helpful. Thank you!

Makes me think it might be a good spot for Catasetum.
