Extreme UV warning issued

Extreme risk of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation

On top of the warning issued yesterday for high temperatures for three days, the island of Madeira has been classified as being under extreme risk of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, according to the Portuguese Weather Institute (IPMA). The island of Porto Santo and the archipelago of the Azores are also deemed at “very high risk” of exposure to UV radiation.

IPMA recommends in case of “extreme risk” that the population avoid exposure to the sun as much as possible.
