AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- Saturday will be an Ozone Action Day across Central Texas, officials said.

The first significant heat wave of this season is expected this weekend, with high temperatures Saturday expected to reach 97 degrees. Atmospheric conditions are expected to be favorable for producing high levels of ozone air pollution, which may cause air quality issues for sensitive groups - including those with asthma and other respiratory problems.

Officials say you can help prevent ozone pollution by sharing a ride, walking or riding a bicycle, taking your lunch to work, avoiding drive-through lanes, conserving energy, and keeping your vehicle properly tuned.
