Storm Team 2 says heat is on; pollution advisory issued

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The heat is a real issue to contend with over the next several days.

The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission issued a pollution advisory for Thursday. It is the second time so far this season it issued a warning.

The advisory is for Clark, Greene, Miami and Montgomery counties.

The MVRPC says it is best on pollution advisory days to avoid driving if possible, refuel after 8:00 p.m. and don’t mow the lawn until after 6:00 p.m.

Storm Team 2 is calling for hot, sunny skies that contribute to the problem.  The mercury rose above 90 Wednesday afternoon for the first time this year.

“It will be hot and humid through the rest of the week,” said Storm Team Meteorologist Tara Hastings. “Highs will be around 90 and the humidity will climb.”

Tara says there is a slight chance that the northern Miami Valley counties could see a thunderstorm Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night.

The best chance for rain is this weekend when a cold front finally drops into the region.
