It may not be Beijing (cough!), but the Wasatch Front continues to battle with (cough!) its own brand of gunk and haze (cough!) in the winter air (cough, cough!).
The Utah Division of Air Quality has declared another "unhealthy" day Saturday for Cache, Salt Lake and Utah counties. That means these groups in those counties should reduce prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion and stay mostly indoors: people with lung disease such as asthma, children and outdoor enthusiasts.
The unhealthy air is expected to continue in those three counties through Monday. The air will be declared "unhealthy" in Weber County on Monday. That also means that the rest of the weekend and Monday will be "no burn days," where it is restricted to use the following: fireplaces, wood and pellet stoves, outdoor fireplaces or fire pits, charcoal grills, smokers and coal-burning stoves.
