BALTIMORE (WJZ)—As temperatures remain high in the region, the quality of air may become dangerous for the vulnerable population.

The Maryland Department of the Environment has issued a Code Orange Air Quality Alert for Tuesday and Wednesday in the Baltimore metro area. It will also be in effect for the Eastern Shore on Tuesday only.

Marty Bass reports hot and humid air is in place, which means chances of daily scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evenings this week.

A Code Orange Air Quality Alert means that air pollution concentrations within the region may become unhealthy for sensitive groups, which include the elderly, children and people suffering from asthma, heart disease or other lung diseases.

The effects of air pollution can be minimized by avoiding strenuous activity or exercise outdoors.
