(KSL News) We don't have much of our famous white snow yet, but we already are starting to get a supply of our infamous yellow air.

The Utah Department of Environmental Quality declared today a Yellow Air Quality Day for Salt Lake, Davis and Cache Counties.

A "yellow" condition during the winter season means residents are asked to voluntarily stop burning wood or coal in their stoves or fireplaces. We also are asked to drive as little as possible.
