Why is it when it's raining the water in the swimming pool is warm but when it is sunny the water in the swimming pool is cold?

It's all about how your body reacts to relative temperatures. The truth is that the pool temperature is not likely to be the culprit.

The transition from standing in the hot sun to getting into your pool makes the water feel colder than it might feel than if you are standing in cold rain before entering the pool.
