Abstract: This study examines the correlation between solar UVB and different weather parameters in Kuwait climate. To achieve that purpose, an experimental outdoor facility is designed and set up at the College of Technological Studies, Kuwait for regular monitoring of solar global radiation, UVB radiation and ambient temperature in Kuwait from beginning of January 1st 2014 until the end of December 2019. Outcomes reveal that the change of solar UVB as well as global radiation through the whole day inaugurate the same behavior for the recorded data in clear day times. Statistical analysis is carried out to obtain a correlation linking UVB radiation and both ambient temperature and global solar radiation. Regression analysis of the current work shows that there is a solid correlation among UVB radiation and both ambient temperature and global solar radiation, especially for intermediate to small global solar radiation ranges. In addition, UV index is evaluated for various months at all day times. It is important to record that UV index with the maximum values is attained in May-August months through midday period. Also, UV index values do not surpass the accepted extreme value which is higher than 9 during any time of the study period.
