UV Index: There’s an App for That.

Ready to hit the beach this weekend? Don’t forget to check your UV Index app.

The Ultraviolet (UV) Index provides a daily forecast of the UV radiation levels from the sun on a 1-11+ scale, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The EPA provides three options for viewing the UV Index app with your phone.  Visit the EPA’s website for more information on its mobile-web, Blackberry and Android apps, or, to find out online what the UV Index is in your area, simply enter your ZIP Code or city and state name in the search feature.

The results are color coded and include an info box with suggestions to minimize your burn/cancer risk.
