Perth UV index

To prevent melanoma you need to know the level of UV radiation, which is measured by the UV index.  The level of UV radiation changes during each day as the sun moves, and through the year with the seasons.  It also depends upon where you are.

See Perth’s current UV index by typing “WA” and “Perth” into the fields at the top of the realtime UV index page provided by ARPANSA. Allow a short time for the chart to appear.  If you hover your mouse over the chart you can see the exact time of day when any radiation level is reached.

When the UV Index rises above 3 you need to protect yourself from the sun’s UV radiation.

See the UV index scale to see how safe or dangerous the UV index levels are.
