Indeed very hot, I noticed it as soon as I came in to work from the ride in.
We also had a very very short Spring this year, usually it lasts until end of April but it started the end of Feb and then got hot fast.. but as of today, May 3rd, it is hotter than normally... or so it "feels"...
Local weather says it's only 81F.. but honestly it feels closer to 95+
just my ho.

Hello....I'm in SW Ontario, and already have a deep tan on my face and arms just from popping outside to have a smoke every now and then. Not only have we (hubby and myself) noticed that the sun feels hotter, it also looks different to us too. The sun used to be more yellow, but now (to us) it looks almost white......white hot, lol....so yes, I totally agree with your observations.
Really wish everyone would quit being so snarky.....we're all well aware that summer is approaching, but after 50 years of living in the same area....we are noticing a difference.

Yes, here was in the high 80's low 90's and I was out for about an hour, in and out of shade and I got burnt. Not bad, but enough to feel it. Sun was very hot and it was humid due to all the freaking rain we got this week.
(I'm about 250 miles SSE of the geographic center of the states)

no, but today was really odd. it was clear skies and sunny where i am but it was also raining. not a cloud for miles yet it was raining over a clear sky. on a side note, i also have a horrible headache to go with it.
maybe dec21 is here a bit early, i always get headaches when a mega quake is about to happen!!!

It's running up to Summer, the days are getting longer and the weather warmer, but you're surprised the Sun is hot? Some days are just like that! It also depends on the humidity and other factors to how hot it "feels", but certainly there was no global phenomenon as we've had a pretty standard April day today in the UK.
