The UV index is a measure of the strength of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
The index ranges from 0 to 11+, with higher values indicating a greater risk of skin damage.
UV index values vary around the world, depending on factors such as latitude, altitude, cloud cover, and ozone levels.
Generally, UV index values tend to be higher near the equator and at higher elevations.
It's important to check the UV index for your location before heading outside. The UV index can change throughout the day, depending on factors such as cloud cover and time of day.
