The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality has issued an ozone health watch for Wednesday.
The weather forecasts show winds and air pressure, along with expected high temperatures, may lead to ozone levels approaching federal health limits. Ozone is a pollutant that is created when other pollutants in the air are heated.
Ozone can aggravate existing respiratory conditions such as asthma. People susceptible to respiratory illness, along with the elderly, should limit time outdoors.
