    UV rays can have serious lasting damage on the eyes and increase your chances of developing cataracts, the number one cause of blindness in the world.

    The Met Office offers ways to protect your eyes from UV rays including good quality sunglasses that keep out 99 percent of the sun’s rays.

    How to protect yourself from UV rays

    As the summer reaches its peak, and temperatures rise, as do the levels of UV across the country.

    UV can be highly damaging to your skin, leading to sped up ageing and in serious cases, caner.

    So, here are some top tips from the CDC to avoid sun damage this summer:

    • Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours.
    • Wear clothes that cover your arms and legs.
    • Consider options to protect your children.
    • Wear a wide brim hat to shade your face, head, ears, and neck.
    • Wear wraparound sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays.
    • Use sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) 15 or higher, for both UVA and UVB protection.
    • Avoid indoor tanning. Indoor tanning is particularly dangerous for younger users; people who begin indoor tanning during adolescence or early adulthood have a higher risk of developing melanoma.

      What Brits should expect in early July

      Brits could be hit with heavy showers and thunderstorms in the first week of July, as the unsettled weather continues, claim the Met Office

      “Sunny spells for many with a few showers at the end of June and beginning of July, there is a low risk of heavy, and possibly thundery showers associated with these in the south and east of the UK.

      Winds are expected to be moderate or strong at times, especially in the northwest and near heavy showers. The unsettled conditions are likely to be confined to the north of the country through the later part of the period, perhaps bringing longer spells of rain to these areas.

      “Southern areas likely staying drier, although with the risk of showers remaining. Temperatures are expected to be near normal, locally warm in parts of the east and southeast.”

      Mystery ‘surprise’ solar storm hits earth

      A SOLAR storm has hit Earth over the weekend and caused a temporary disturbance of the planet’s magnetosphere.

      The storm was caused by an unexpected Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that was embedded in the solar wind, according to The Express.

      A CME occurs when the Sun ejects a cloud of charged particles and electromagnetic fluctuations from its atmosphere.

      They are one of the most powerful forms of a solar storm.

      “A minor G1-class geomagnetic storm broke out around midnight (UT) on June 25-26,” according to Experts at Spaceweather.com.

      “Forecasters aren’t sure why. The prime suspect is an unexpected CME embedded in the solar wind.

      “So far no auroras have been reported from the six-hour storm.”
