Ozone alert day issued for Friday
OKLAHOMA CITY– While temperatures continue to climb, officials are predicting that conditions are right for an ozone alert day.
The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality projects that Friday will have atmospheric conditions favorable for air pollution that could cause health issues for some residents.

Experts stress that you should use your vehicle sparingly and stay away from using a gas-powered lawn mower and even a charcoal grill.
