The UV Index is how we measure the sunburn-producing UV (ultraviolet) rays from the sun at any specific location and or time of day. The lower the number, the lower the danger; the higher the number, the stronger the harmful rays of the sun.
It’s a great way to help avoid overexposure to the sun.
|UV Index||Exposure||Estimated Sunburn Time (*can vary by skin type)|
|0-2||Low||More than an hour|
|6-7||High||About 30 minutes|
|8-10||Very High||About 20 minutes|
|11+||Extreme||Less than 10 minutes|
