Ozone – Good & Bad



A good way to remember this is ozone is GOOD up high, BAD nearby. 



Ground level ozone can irritate the lungs, especially for those with suffer from emphysema and asthma.  Upper level ozone is good because it blocks out harmful UV rays.  



We are now in ozone season, and days with warm temperatures, sunny skies and light winds will trigger the formation of ozone on the ground.
