Air Quality Advisory Issued for Monday, July 6th

Jul 05, 2020
Sunday, July 5 and Monday, July 6 are Air Quality Advisory days in the Youngstown-Warren Area. An upper-level ridge of high pressure over the eastern U.S. will inhibit vertical mixing, and winds near the surface will lighten, limiting pollutant dispersion. Furthermore, hot, sunny conditions will enhance ozone formation, and lingering pollutants from 4th of July fireworks will increase particle levels on Sunday. As a result, AQI levels will be Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups on both days. Tuesday through Friday, an increase in clouds and isolated thunderstorms will slightly limit ozone formation. However, warm temperatures will aid ozone production, and pollutant carryover from previous days will be high. As a result, AQI levels will remain Moderate on all four days.
