Another Code Orange Smog Alert

ATLANTA -- We've been hit with yet another Code Orange Air Quality Alert for Wednesday.

Under Code Orange conditions, being outside is considered unhealthy for children, people who are sensitive to ozone and people with heart or lung disease. Those people are advised to limit or avoid outdoor exertion during the late afternoon hours when ozone concentration is at its highest.

Highs are expected to remain in the mid 90s under hot, hazy skies through the remainder of the week. There's a chance of storms by Friday and through the weekend, but our heatwave is expected to continue into next week.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Nate Mayes says since May 20, every day has been hotter than normal in Atlanta, with the exception of May 27, when temperatures were about average for this time of year.
