App for UV index


Odd request but can anyone tell me if there is an app/website that tells you the time of day when UV is high. I know it’s obviously high during the middle of the day but I would like one that has time specific to Hawaii.

I have a small child and obviously stay out of the sun as much as possible in the middle of the day. In Australia we have an app called sunsmart made by the chance council that tells you time of day Uv is high and sun protection is required.

For example at the moment in QLD it’s 7am-3pm but in Victoria it’s 9.30am-5pm.

Thanks in advance

Not an App, but here's what you need:


This is from our National Weather Service and I'd trust it more than many apps.

I use the app Weather Underground and it has UV Index. They probably get their data from the National Weather Service.
