...AIR QUALITY ADVISORY ISSUED FOR BROWN, CALUMET, DOOR, FOND DU
LAC, KENOSHA, KEWAUNEE, MANITOWOC, MILWAUKEE, OZAUKEE, RACINE,
SHEBOYGAN, WALWORTH, WASHINGTON & WAUKESHA COUNTIES...

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has issued an Air
Quality Advisory for Ozone which will be in effect from 12:00 PM
CDT Saturday until 12:00 AM CDT Sunday (Saturday night). This
advisory affects people living in the following counties: Brown,
Calumet, Door, Fond du Lac, Kenosha, Kewaunee, Manitowoc,
Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington,
Waukesha.

Due to southerly transport of ozone and ozone precursors, as well
as the presence of a lake breeze, the air quality index is
expected to reach the UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS level.
People with lung ailments (such as asthma), children, older
adults, and people who are active outdoors (including outdoor
workers) should reduce prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion.

The air quality index could reach UNHEALTHY levels in lakeshore
counties, as ozone concentrations will increase with proximity to
the Lake Michigan shoreline. People with lung ailments (such as
asthma), heart disease, children, older adults, and people who
are active outdoors (including outdoor workers) should avoid
prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion; everyone else should reduce
prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion.
