We have the first Air Quality Alert of the year today. Pollution has settled in the Ohio Valley with calm winds, and it will continue to collect today. There are some easy ways to reduce pollution other than carpooling or planting a tree (which many would like to do, but may not have time for).
Packing a lunch or dinner so you don't have to drive to get something to eat on your lunch/dinner break.
Skip mowing the yard today.
Raise the thermostat 2° today.
Temperatures will reach 93° this afternoon. With dew point temperatures in the 70s, the humidity is oppressive. The high humidity will make it feel close to 100° this afternoon, so get ready to sweat! Because of all the heat and humidity, a stray shower cannot be ruled out; however, most of the area will stay dry.
An approaching cold front will bring a few storms our way tomorrow afternoon and early evening. These storms are not expected to be severe; however, some may have strong winds. This cold front will help to clear out some of the pollution that has settled in the valley, so air quality should begin improving tomorrow.
