Question about UV and tanning watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    My family is moving to Singapore next year. I am fairly dark skinned but I enjoy sunbathing on holiday to get a nice tan (I don't use sunbeds).

    I checked what the UV index for Singapore is like, and it says 10 or 11 for most days throughout the year, since it's near the equator, and it's very warm too.

    However, no weather forecasts and stuff I noticed that the weather is almost always usually grey-skies and cloudy, even when the UV index is very high.

    Does that mean I can still tan outside when it's cloudy there, or will I have to wait until the skies are clear?

    No. It can be higher when there's thin layers of cloud, as cloud acts as a magnifier.
