DEP alerts public of Air Quality Action Day for Ozone Monday, May 28

From the Department of Environmental Protection:

Monday, May 28: 105 AQI Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups Ozone
65 AQI Moderate Particle Pollution (2.5 microns)

Memorial Day: On Monday, the south/southeasterly wind will turn to become more south/southwesterly. This will continue to pump warm and moist air into the region for yet another hazy, hot, and humid day. Temperatures will again climb to near 90 degrees while dew point temperatures remain in the 60s. Mostly sunny skies combined with a more south/southwesterly flow will help to bump up both Ozone and PM 2.5 levels. High moderate levels of Ozone are likely, though a few locations could see readings climb into the Code Orange range. As a result, we will be issuing an Action Day for Monday for Ozone. PM 2.5 levels will remain in the moderate range. ***
