Earlier this year, the ozone layer has been thick over Sweden, but since June is here, that invisible layer which usually protects us is a bit thinner, leaving SMHI to say once again, “Be careful in the sun.”
During the spring, the ozone layer of Sweden was as thick as it has been since 1988. But the layer has been especially thin the past few days.
SMHI said the higher the sun the higher the UV-index rises. While the index is often around 5 during midday, in southern Sweden the index can rise to seven.
The SMHI Web site recommends no more than 40 minutes of sun with a UV-index around five.
