Yellow Ozone Alert Today

Posted By on Mon, Jul 18, 2011 at 7:41 AM

Another week, another air quality alert for the Treasure Valley.

Following a weekend with a moderate level of health concern, a yellow ozone forecast has been posted for today for Ada and Canyon counties. People with lung or heart probelms are at greater risk from exposure to particle pollution.

Today's Air Quality Index is 58, just shy of 60, which is the level at which open and outdoor burning is banned.

The Treasure Valley is expected to hit 90 degrees-plus through much of the week ahead. We're not alone. Up to 40 states have forecast highs of 90 or above.
