CLEVELAND (WJW)– An Air Quality Alert is in effect through Wednesday night for Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit counties.

Air quality levels will be unhealthy for children, the elderly and those with breathing difficulties. People in these groups should limit their activity outside.

Here’s why this alert has been put in place, according to our meteorologist, AJ Colby: The air is stagnant — it’s not moving — and winds are very light. That allows pollutants to build up. They will be swept out once the winds pick up Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.
