Environment Canada is predicting a sunny weekend, but also warning of a higher UV index. The makers of our (their) weather forecast warn that you should not expose your bare skin to the sun for extended periods of time. Especially people with light skin and a predisposition for sun burns. 

Over-exposure to the UV rays of our sun can lead to sun burns, which in turn are partly blaimed for skin cancermelanoma. So let’s play it safe, wear a hat at the beach and no skinny dipping before sunset!
