The National Weather Service issued a special weather alert to warn people about stagnant conditions expected to start tonight.

“Colder air trapped near the surface by warmer air aloft is expected to cause pollutants… such as wood smoke and vehicle exhaust… to accumulate and reduce the air quality the latter half of this week,” the warning says.

The pollution could mean trouble for people with breathing problems.

Forecasters said the stagnant air mass, brought about by a high pressure ridge, could linger through early next week.
