UV rays change with time of day, season and location. Here are some interesting facts to keep in mind when planning your outdoor activities this summer:
- Time of Day: UV is greatest when the sun is at its highest in the sky — between 10 am and 4 pm — and less in the early morning and late afternoon.
- Seasonal: While UV exposure is greatest in the summer (May—August) in the U.S., it’s important to remember UV rays reach Earth every day, so be sun safe year-round—including wintertime! Snow can reflect 85% to 90% of the sun’s UV rays.
- Altitude: UV exposure is greater in the mountains than in the valleys because air is cleaner and thinner at higher altitudes
- Location: UV is strongest at the equator and gets weaker moving towards the poles.
- Exposure: The longer you’re out in the sun, the more UV rays you receive; remember, you are exposed whenever you’re outside.
