PHOENIX (AP) - Environmental regulators have issued a high pollution advisory Wednesday for metro Phoenix.

The advisory was issued in anticipation of a lack of wind that could raise ozone levels.

The aim is to reduce pollutants at a time when the area’s pollution levels may exceed the federal health standard for air quality.

Regulators say people with respiratory problems should limit their outdoor activities on Wednesday.

Other recommendations include driving as little as possible and making sure that containers with household cleaners and other chemicals are sealed to prevent vapors from evaporating into the air.
