Wondering which days are safest to be out in the sun? If you live in the U.S., you can check out the SunWise ultraviolet forecast, based on predictions from the National Weather Center. Looks like this weekend will be a scorcher!

Plug in a zip code or a city and a state, and the UV forecast will tell you how intense the sun’s rays are expected to be today. It will also give you tips for sun-appropriate behavior (like how strong your sunscreen should be) and let you know whether the Environmental Protection Agency has issued a UV warning for your area. There’s one in effect today for parts of southern California, so if you live there cover up.
