Enjoy the Sacramento sun but watch out for the UV

Temperatures are expected to remain hot through the week but stay well below 100-degrees.

Late afternoon high temperatures this week will be about normal for early July, according to the National Weather Service. The high in Sacramento on Wednesday is expected to be 93 degrees, which is spot on normal for July 9.

The normal daytime temperatures carry the possibility for sunburn. Forecasters at the Sacramento NWS office supplied tips from the World Health Organization on dealing with ultraviolet radiation associated with sunny summertime conditions:

•  Try to avoid sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

•  If outdoors, seek shade and wear protective clothing

•  A wide-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses do the trick.

•  Apply broad spectrum SPF 30-plus sunscreen every two hours.

•  Be aware that surfaces such as sand or water can reflect UV and increase exposure.
