With high temperatures still baking the Southland, the South Coast Air Quality Management District Tuesday extended an ozone advisory for much of the South Coast Air Basin and Coachella Valley due to the heat wave.

The advisory — which had been scheduled to expire at 8 p.m. Tuesday — now will run through 8 p.m. Saturday.

According to an AQMD statement, “Over the past few days, Air Quality Index (AQI) levels have reached Unhealthy in most inland areas and Very Unhealthy in some localized areas due to a prolonged heat wave.”
