ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A "code orange" air quality alert is in effect for Atlanta Thursday.

This means the air may be unhealthy for kids and those of you with lung issues.

You should limit your outdoor activity during an alert day, especially during the late afternoon and early evening hours.

A "code orange" day is the third out of six total categories, with red, purple and maroon being worse.

This is the first code orange day in Atlanta this year.
