These days it's dawning one hour earlier.
These days the sun is rising one hour earlier.
These days the daybreak is happening one hour earlier.

Yes. Although replacing "one" with "an" will sound more idiomatic.

I have a doubt.

The word dawn means Amanecer.
Therefore I can write Today dawned earlier than yesterday, I know that is impossible, just it's an only a instance for correcting me.


Yours truly.
