COLORADO SPRINGS — Have you noticed a haze out across the mountains and foothills this morning? Ozone alerts are in place across from El Paso County north into Denver.

Pollutants are trapped down near the surface with ozone concentrations in the moderate range category. Those sensitive to air quality should stay indoors or wear a mask outside. Limited driving is requested through 4 pm this afternoon to lessen the impacts on neighborhood air quality.

A change in the forecast for Friday and stronger surface winds should allow for better air quality.
