ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A state agency has issued an air pollution advisory for Saturday for portions of eastern, southern and southwestern Minnesota.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency says temperatures in the low 90s will lead to ground-level ozone formation, which can cause health complications for those susceptible. Agency officials say even people who are otherwise healthy may experience health effects by the increased ozone levels.

The affected area includes the Twin Cities metro area, Mankato, New Ulm, Albert Lea, Fairmont and Marshall.

Ozone concentrations are expected to gradually rise late in the morning through the afternoon, then decline after sunset.
