The National Weather Service Wilmington office has issued an excessive heat warning for southwest Ohio, including Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, and Warren counties. The excessive heat warning went into effect at 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 18 through Saturday, July 20 at 8 p.m.

These high temperatures, combined with the abundant sunshine, are ideal condition for ozone concentrations to rise. Ozone concentrations that exceed 101 on the air quality index may cause members of sensitive groups to experience health effects. Sensitive groups include people with lung disease (such as asthma), older adults, and children. The U.S. EPA recommends that people in sensitive groups avoid prolonged outdoor exertion. The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency will issue an Air Quality Advisory when ozone concentrations are expected to reach the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups level of the Air Quality Index.

You can view real-time ozone concentrations on our website. The chart shows the hourly ozone concentrations at the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency’s eight ozone monitors.

You may sign up to receive air quality emails at EnviroFlash which will let you know if the Agency has issued an Air Quality Advisory.
