Not here in Norway. Been cloudy and rainy all day long. Just hope the clouds clear up before the transit of Venus in June.

What i have noticed is that i can easily stare at the sun. Ican see it glimmering, doesnt hurt my eyes. Has anyone else noticed? Also the conection to the pineal gland via eyes. Sorry for off topic but you reminded me to mention. Sorry.

Yeah i noticed it yesterday.
yesterday was the first day in a while where there were clear skies, too.
I'm thinking that the cloud seeding(or as people like to call it "chemtrails") are being used to block the sun's rays.
There's probably a hole in the Ozone layer right above the U.S. I wouldn't be surprised if the Ozone layer was completely destroyed around the entire Earth.

Do people denying this ever go outside for extended periods of time?

It's not normal.
Don't fear though. It'll be alright in the end.

Thanks for posting your map. It looks like mine is figuring over all average for the day while yours is a bit more relevant to my thinking by showing noon time sun level. Anyway, the weather page I have now has my map and yours on a split screen.

They both come from the NWS and Uncle Sam is worth something for all that tax money. The old fart supplies a near endless flow of free dynamic content for sites with science or economic sections.... I hadn't seen that map though so great catch and share!


@ The skeptics on the thread

There really is a good use for these and it isn't doom porn. It's a very good thing to check before heading out for fun in the sun. Is it a 'tanning a warm brown' day or a 'lobster in pain for a week' kind of day? lol... That's why I carry the display anyway. NASA has far better things for the Sun doing something funny....but this is a useful "Sunburn Warning" map, IMO

Tuesday, here in Germany, it was rainy and hot. Nothing that wasn't normal though. I heard it was extremely hot on Thursday in the east cost of the US

This is strange because in nova scotia , it was so hot on the top of my head today i thought it was really strange that i found it so unbearable .

Here is an idea. Anyone in the UV 11 zones have metered solar power? It would be interesting to see if solar panel production is rising significantly in these 'hot" areas.

No.

3rd May was my coldest May day on record .....


But i've been seriously sunburnt in early May in the past.

It varies from year to year. I think it's called "weather"?

I absolutely noticed it. Was out in the yard fixing some seedlings after the hard rain and the sun was shining directly on my back. It was very noticably hotter than usual where the sun hit but the temperature as a whole was fairly mild. i said to myself that these is something different about the sun whether science wants to admit it or not.


Thanks for the input here, that is what I thought too.......besides me running for the garage I kept thinking this is not right and I have never felt this kind of heat in my 50 years plus on this planet.

Were you wet?

You should go to Morocco in the summer, then we can talk.


P.S Does anyone know if skin gets more sensitive as we get older?

well on May Day & the following day (2nd) i was out at the picnic bench fabricating specialty signage for my son's business

it was the first time in more than 20 years that i got the 'redneck' sunburn... after less than +3 hours of sun-time from 12: noon till 4 PM...i got a very strong dose that made me very sensitive on the bedsheets and wearing a old-codger shirt to look presentable for my marketing at bi-lo grocery the very next day


now it is Friday and i have healed enough... but will wear a shirt on all my future outings in the yard

i say that the SUN is white hot..instead of the mellow yellow it used to be in my younger years in PA/WV/Michigan even during my mid 20s in Fla when the sunshine was pleasant instead of intense
 



...
P.S Does anyone know if skin gets more sensitive as we get older?...


~class of '48'~
yeah, it must if you gravitate toward living a AC/ TV watching, 'mushroom' existance...
Except for a steady rain, i am outdoors, wearing a mesh fishing vest, for 10 hours a day...
if the rain stops me from outside work then i'm indoors doing remodeling, etc

i think junk like steady tobacco smoking and coffee wears the skin out more than vitamin D sunshine

From my own personal observations, this is how it goes around here. SoCal used to be known for it's sunny, clear days that displayed a lovely warm glow on the landscape. At least that is how it was almost a decade ago when we moved here.
Now, we are lucky to have more than a few days of sun a week. Most days, the skies are hazed over..almost white, if not gray.
So it stays fairly cool, even cold at times. Then we will have a day or two of "contrail"-less skies. Every time, without fail..after this interval, the sun feels like it is BOILING and the heat goes right up. I burn very quickly, which used to be unheard of for me..I always tanned.
Then the haze is back, sun is faded and the cool is back. I noticed it so many times, I started to keep a log.

One must also consider that perception has been tainted by temporal conditions and societal undercurrents. The locus of focus determines perception. Thereby, the skin may feel and the eyes may see only what they are looking for.

You know, the difference in maps is almost as interesting as the very high levels they both show....albeit in very different areas. Odd with that.

Uv levels are elevated in various areas of the country. Wife told me yesterday AM that she saw that UV levels were going to be 13 yesterday. I'm trying to find evidence of that and how it compares historically,(it seems higher than i remember hearing but for now here is today's forecast. Hope I did the image properly.

That is the point I made in the OP, I am outside all day every day working in the yard to keep my sanity.
It is a hobby of necessity and I do notice everything going on around me.
Thanks for the input.

Great idea it would be interesting to hear from anyone with metered solar power.

Thanks for the reply and I am curious to know if you find the sun hotter there than when you were first deployed?
Maybe you have a few tours under your belt?
