More information about the Sun Protection Alert
What does the Sun Protection Alert mean?
In the example on the left, the key message is that you need to protect your skin and eyes from 10.50am to 3.30pm. Protection is required when UV radiation is damaging (when UV levels are 3 or higher).
The Sun Protection Alert also reminds you about some of the SunSmart steps to use - in this example, wear a hat and sunglasses.
Where else can I see the Sun Protection Alert?
For skiers, the MetService website has a tab for Mountains & Parks that has information on national parks and ski fields. There is also a free Snow Weather App.
