For his honorary birthday — though not his real one — George Washington gets cooling, moderately unhealthy air. Sorry, Mr. President.

The Utah Division of Air Quality says Sunday will be a "yellow," or unhealthy day, to be outside in Salt Lake, Davis, Utah and Uintah counties; while red, no-burn alerts have been issued for Cache, Box Elder and Weber counties.
