   Air quality forecasting officially begins Wednesday for the 2013 summer season, and St. Louis residents will want to pay attention in order to protect their health.  

   Officials with the American Lung Association say that's because the air in St. Louis is getting worse.  Their latest State of the Air report shows the Gateway City is now ranked 25th worst in the nation for ozone pollution.  We were 34th last year.  

   And St. Louis is 12th when it comes to year round particulate pollution.  That's a slight improvement over our 10th place finish last year.  But officials say it still means St. Louis is among the most polluted metropolitan areas in the nation.  

   Residents who want to receive air quality updates by email, can sign up at the Clean Air St. Louis website
