Air Quality Alert For Father’s Day Forecast
WGRZ is reporting an air quality alert for tomorrow, Father's Day, for western New York.
What's an air quality alert mean? WGRZ says, "Outdoor air quality levels are predicted to be greater than an air quality index value of 100 for ozone. The higher the AQI value, the greater the health concern."
This means people with respiratory issues such as asthma, COPD, or heart disease -- as well as the very young and elderly -- should limit strenuous activity during an air quality alert.
However, according to the National Weather Service, we aren't likely to break the hottest Father's Day on record.
