ATLANTA -- Georgia's Environmental Protection Division says the Air Quality Index for Metro Atlanta is 101 on Monday. 


The EPD says the figure means Atlanta's air is unhealthy for sensitive groups, and it's issued an orange smog alert for the area.


The agency says children, people who are sensitive to ozone and people with heart or lung disease should limit prolonged outdoor exertion during the late afternoon or early evening when ozone concentrations are highest.


High temperatures are expected to be in the 80s on Monday and approaching 90 on Tuesday.

Hall County, GA--  Much of Georgia received a healthy dusting of snow overnight and in the early morning hours, as the February Winter storm "blew-in" dropping roughly an inch of snow in the Atlanta area.

The traffic commute was mostly affected in the northern part of the state, near bridges and overpasses, but for the most part this snow event was tame compared to the Snowmageddon of this past January.
