"Red" air quality expected for next several days
Utah County is experiencing a high pressure inversion that is creating unhealthy air conditions. Those with sensitivity (such as individuals with lung disease, asthma, etc.) should take extra precautions. Everyone is cautioned to avoid prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion. It is a red burn day, and everyone is encouraged to limit driving, carpool, or use mass transit.
