These hot and humid conditions will create poor air quality across D-FW. 

There is a air quality alert for all of the counties in the area Sunday. 

The air quality can negatively impact sensitive groups, including elderly people, babies and those who suffer from asthma. To help prevent these air quality conditions, try carpooling, conserve energy and walk or ride your bike instead of driving.
