The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has issued an air quality health advisory for Long Island from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday due to an excess of ozone, according to the National Weather Service.

The agency cautioned that people should consider limiting strenuous outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse impacts. Groups that may be sensitive to poor air quality include the very young and those with preexisting respiratory problems including asthma and heart disease.

The day is expected to be sunny and warm with a high near 84 degrees, the NWS said. The low tonight will be around 66.
