TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Pima County Department of Environmental Quality has issued an air quality advisory due to expected high winds.

Officials said Thursday that the advisory will be in effect from Thursday afternoon to Friday.

Forecasters said elevated winds may cause higher than normal levels of soot, dust, and aerosols in the air.

Health officials said individuals with heart disease and respiratory sensitivities should remain inside.
