I notice tomorrow's UV will be Very High (7) to Extreme (10).

What descriptive terms are used for even higher UV? Have we run out of superlatives?

Extreme is the highest.

Extreme is a UV index of 9 and above
Very high is a UV index of 7-9
High is a UV index of 3-6

The highest ive seen is 12,on the forcasts.I guess you could call it extroadinarily extreme,or extra extra extreme.

I have seen a 14 before. The graph used on Brisbane uv forcast goes up to 20. Now I would hate to see a 20 day.
