Cosmic rays linked to cloudy days (http://www.newscientistspace.com/article/mg18925365.700-cosmic-rays-linked-to-cloudy-days-.html)


If you love to moan about cloudy grey weather, you now have something to blame: cosmic rays. These high-energy particles originate in outer space and in solar flares, and can have a small but significant effect on the weather, increasing the chances of an overcast day by nearly 20 per cent.
