What is the UV Index?

The UV Index was developed by the National Weather Service and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and provides a daily prediction to UV intensity levels on a scale of 1 to 11+. UV levels are a reflection of the expected risk of overexposure to the sun and the higher the number the more you’ll want to stay indoors or in the shade.
