UV factors are independent of solar storms. Your local atmospheric conditions and temperature have more to do with it than the sun. The sun is quite consistent.


Sorry, but, from my first hand experience this does not ring true to me.
It might be right on, but it just doesn’t work out for me in the reality of the situation.

Yesterday for me was cooler than usual by a lot... One reason I went to the beach.

Today, I’m toast.

Naw, sorry. Something’s going on. And I’m not the only one who thinks so hear. Many people in the condo I work in are complaining of the same thing.
I thought they were just being wussies.
Nope.

Thank you though.

Air temperature has nothing to do with getting a sunburn. Maybe because the air was cool you didn't feel hot and stayed out longer that you would have if it wasn't cool. I know it's happened to me.






oh. almost forgot .

From my proffesional stance, air temperature is not related in anyway to the suns UV output. Air temperature is a completely different parameter to the amount of UV radiation that reaches the ground.

While it may feel cool outside, there are other factors that will affect the temperature, ie wind chill and cloud cover. So while it may feel cooler, the suns rays will still be as harmful as they are on a warm day

Or my disposition?


I am willing to point out that one of your facts is incorrect:

**Looks up to date, to me.



As for your disposition, it seems to be ill tempered, and quite possibly delusional. I don't think that I can be of much help to you there...

Hey guys does this have anything to do with it?




The KP index just went up to 6

I've read that the Kp Index is a 3 hour average of the earth's magnetic field activity. Am I right?

I hope my "wifi" doesn't go out.

I always monitor this and this is a first.

That's good news! If you live in the northern states, enjoy the light show...


When the Kp index = 6 (G2 warning):

www.swpc.noaa.gov...



aurora has been seen as low as New York and Idaho (typically 55° geomagnetic lat.)**.

I guess I was wrong about no storm brewing.

Yeah, you're right about it reading 6. That's a G2 level, not really bad. I'm trying to figure out where that reading came from though. It's sort of an average of a lot of locations but I haven't found one that high.

Not until the the Kp index there get's up over a '7'. Here is a map of North America, showing what the Kp index would need to be in particular locations for the Aurora to be visible:

Wow you really found the answers to everyone's questions down to the T

I can't wait to see a 9

heh, but then our powergrid will most likely fail.

Who knows?

Here it is.
geomag.usgs.gov...

Fairbanks and Sitka spiked between 05:00 and 06:00. That's what drove the number up.

IMHO, I would go off of the Magnetometer readings in Boulder, CO:
