definitely...much brighter and stronger sun... very easy to get sun burn and look like a lobster.

Rick Santos it is because it is october, 2 months away from winter solstice... most of the year pretty freaking strong in south florida, esp if you venture down to key west.

Not sure what are referring to but from your description it happens here too, during summer months. Gets very dark before/during a t-storm, with sheets of rain and frequent lightning. It doesn't last very long though.

that's true. Seattle gets its rain mostly in November, December, January and February. In the summer there are 20-30 consecutive days without a drop then 2-3 rainy days and then the same dry period

Rainy day means a day with more than 0.01" precipitation which is not very accurate
