NEW YORK (AP) — The hot weather is coming with an air quality health advisory for much of Western New York.
The state Department of Environmental Conseration and the Department of Health are warning residents in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Erie, Wyoming, Genesee, Orleans and Niagara counties about ground level pollution that can increase in hot weather.
Officials recommend that young children, people who exercise or work outdoors or who have respiratory diseases like asthma should limit outside activity especially in the afternoon and evening when ground-level ozone levels tend to be at their highest.
Temperatures in the Jamestown area were expected to be in the mid-80s until about 7 p.m. when they dip into the 70s.
The advisory is until 11 p.m. Sunday night.
