    By WHIO Staff,


    An Air Quality Alert has been issued for parts of the Miami Valley on Thursday.

    Storm Center 7 is tracking the heat and what you can expect in your neighborhood on News Center 7 at 5:00 and 6:00.

    The alert is for all areas of Clark, Darke, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, and Preble counties, according to the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission.

    The Air Quality Index (AQI) forecast is 105 for Thursday, June 13.

    >> Dry, warming up today, Very few chances for rain, hotter next week

    Any reading at 101 or higher is considered “unhealthy for sensitive groups”.

    The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission said temperatures are expected in the upper 80s with southerly winds, making conditions favorable for ground-level ozone formation.

    The general public is not likely to be affected and for most people, it is okay to be active outside, but take more breaks and do less strenuous activities, the commission advised.
