First topic message reminder :

so this is something that i had recently discovered, i can inform 2 different ways to find the uv in your area.
the first is

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

you type in your information, it is simply your state, city and zip code. they will then give you a number between 0-15, i will explain the numbers at the end. the number they give you here is the highest uv you will come in contact with all day, but not at the moment, still very useful.


the second is how how i found out about it and is a lot better. it only works if you have firefox. if your familiar with this web browser they provide free addons to your window. go to

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

type in ani weather(animated weather)click on it it will be the sun with glasses on it's eyes, after you download it reset it for your area and at the small corner of your screen it will show the the weather and uv for you area and it is live, so that is the uv for your area at that specific time.

right now firefox says my uv is zero, makes since because the sun is down, epa says it's 9, but thats just the whole days reading and doesn't change.

ok, so the numbers i'll copy and paste the information is from the epa site

You can safely enjoy being outside. Wear sunglasses on bright days. If you burn easily, cover up and use sunscreen SPF 15+.

In winter, reflection off snow can nearly double UV strength.

MODERATE
3-5
Take precautions if you will be outside, such as wearing a hat and sunglasses and using sunscreen SPF 15+. Reduce your exposure to the sun's most intense UV radiation by seeking shade during midday hours.

HIGH
6-7
Protection against sun damage is needed. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, use sunscreen SPF 15+ and wear a long-sleeved shirt and pants when practical. Reduce your exposure to the sun's most intense UV radiation by seeking shade during midday hours.

VERY HIGH
8-10
Protection against sun damage is needed. If you need to be outside during midday hours between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., take steps to reduce sun exposure. A shirt, hat and sunscreen are a must, and be sure you seek shade.

Beachgoers should know that white sand and other bright surfaces reflect UV and can double UV exposure.

EXTREME
11+
Protection against sun damage is needed. If you need to be outside during midday hours between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., take steps to reduce sun exposure. A shirt, hat and sunscreen are a must, and be sure you seek shade.

Using the underground was a nightmare. It gets incredibly hot down there. You would think that by 2011 they would have thought of a way to keep things cool down there. You can be sweating buckets for a five minute journey !!!!! I dread to think what tourists are going to think come the 2012 olympic games.


Guess I will be cancelling my ticket to the games then. & there was me thinking that you folks in the Uk were supposed to be civilised lol!

Trust me some times it feels like we are still in the dark ages. They can fly a man to the moon but cannot fit a cooling system on the underground.
