Ozone Action Day for Monday

High pressure building over North Carolina will make for a very hot day Monday. The hot day along with light winds will trap pollution in the lowest levels of the atmosphere. That could make for a poor air quality day, so the North Carolina Division of Air Quality has issued a Code Orange Action day for the Triangle, the Triad, and the Charlotte area. A Code Orange day means people with respiratory problems should limit their time spent outside especially during the hottest part of the day.

There are some things you can do to reduce the air pollution tomorrow. Limiting your driving and carpooling will help to reduce vehicle emissions. Waiting until after dusk tomorrow evening to refuel your car or truck will help also.
