It is most prevalent during hot, sunny, summer days with low wind speeds.Sensitive groups, including older adults, children and those with heart or respiratory conditions, are encouraged to refrain from vigorous outdoor activity or consider remaining indoors.

More wind and a high chance of thunderstorms are expected to ease pollution on Sunday.
