Extended description

Whether you live in the scorching deserts of Arizona, the temperate climate of San Diego, or the frigid winters of Minnesota, it’s important to know the forecast on any given day. This will allow you to plan activities, wardrobe choices, and coordinate events. However, it’s easy to forget to check the weather since you most of the time have to go out of your way to do so. This involves pulling out your phone, trying to search for the weather by zip code, and other methods that take time and require you to go outside of your normal routine.

However, a new solution has arrived that is built right within the web browser that you can access any time to see real-time forecasts and weather information all at the click of a button. That solution is called UV Weather. It is an innovative new Chrome extension that allows you to see weather forecasts and heat index information so that you can be well-prepared, safe, and comfortable during your day since you’ll always know what Mother Nature is going to throw at you.

As an added bonus of functionality, UV Weather is specifically designed to help keep you safe from UV rays by informing you of the intensity of the sun at any given time. For those who are conscious about protecting themselves from the harmful effects of the sun, this extension is a no-brainer and provides them with an easy way to access critical weather information that can keep you safe!
