Air Quality Forecasting Shifts with the Season

The threat of high ozone diminishes as the hours of daylight shorten and temperatures drop.

Officially, our air quality forecasting has shifted from both ozone and particle pollution forecasting to just particle pollution. However, it’s always important to maintain daily habits which keep our pollution low and our air healthy.

Reduce idling, share rides and walk or bike when you can to keep our air cleaner and our community healthier. Leaves and yard waste make great compost and should never be burned. Tires may be under ideal pressure since the temperatures have dropped, so check them and add air as needed. Don’t put off vehicle maintenance like oil changes.

Air friendly habits and regular vehicle maintenance will help keep the air clean year round, and keep our community healthier throughout all seasons.
