Triple digits, Ozone Action Day in store for Friday

July 27, 2018 - 8:19 am

AUSTIN (KJCE) -- Our streak of triple digit heat and another Ozone Action Day will continue Friday.

Temperatures are forecast to hit 101 in Austin Friday, with the streak predicted to continue through early next week. There is good news in the extended forecast, as a front will approach the area and bring us another chance of rain.

Light winds and hot temperatures will contribute to elevated ozone levels Friday, prompting officials to call another Ozone Action Day. Air quality will be in the "unhealthy for sensitive groups" range, meaning irritation or difficulty breathing for those with asthma, emphysema or other respiratory problems.
