SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — San Antonio residents are being told to beware of diminished air quality tomorrow.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said that weather conditions will be favorable to produce high levels of ozone air pollutions.

City officials said people in the San Antonio area should take the proper precautions by minimizing working or exercising outdoors tomorrow and to stay indoors.
