The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is issuing an Air Quality Advisory for Particle Pollution in Racine and six neighboring counties effective 11:37 a.m. this morning until 9 a.m. Friday.

The watch is being issued because of the forecast for elevated levels of fine particles in the air.

The Air Quality Index is forecast to reach the orange level, which is considered unhealthy for people with heart or lung disease, asthma, older adults and children.
