"Solskin" is the Danish word for "sunshine", while "saa det vil noget"
(or "så det vil noget", in modern Danish spelling) is an idiomatic
expression that literally translates as "like it wants something". 
The exact meaning can be different depending on its context, but it
would generally be a reinforcement of the word it is attached to.

The fragment "solskin så det vil noget" could be translated as "really
lots of sunshine".  Compare with the use of "regnvejr så det vil
noget" on this web page ("regnvejr" = "rainy weather"):
The caption of the picture can be translated as "It is fantastic when
Nature opens the great floodgates and lets the water pour down".

I hope this information answers your question.  If not, please request
an answer clarification before you proceed to rate my answer.

Strategy for answering your question:  Personal knowledge - Norwegian
is my mother tounge, thus I understand Danish quite easily (as the
languages are very closely related).

thank you for your prompt response, i believe it makes sense.  i had
posted, "so rainy today" and my danish friend responded with "solskin
saa det vil noget", so "really lots of sunshine" does make sense since
the sun was starting to peek out!  thanks blazius!
