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.

Officials say ozone particles may form near the ground, which can be especially dangerous to children, the elderly and anyone with respiratory illnesses.

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