Fall is a time for transition. Cooler temperatures mean it’s time to bring out the jackets and hoodies. It also means it’s the end of what is considered Ozone Season in Kentuckiana.
The change of seasons reduces several contributors to ozone, including ultraviolet light and high temperatures. That doesn’t mean the end of air pollution forecasts, however. Forecasts will focus on particle pollution throughout the fall and winter until we enter ozone season again in the spring.
Just because we’re at the end of ozone season, doesn’t mean we should stop doing our part for cleaner air. Good air quality habits make a difference all year round. In fact, being Idle Free, combining errands and driving less make a difference here in your community, no matter what the weather.
