DETROIT (WWJ) - Another day of hot, sticky weather means another Ozone Action Day across metro Detroit.

The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments says high temps and high humidity will lead to increased ozone levels Tuesday. People are being urged to avoid the gas pump, put off outdoor yard work, and pass on any other activities that might release gas fumes into the air.

CBS 62 Meteorologist April Moss said Tuesday will be very hot and humid, with temperatures reaching into the 90s.

“This hot, hazy weather will push through throughout the day and then Tuesday night into Wednesday, a cold front will push through, dropping temperatures about 20 degrees,” she said.

Here’s the extended forecast from the CBS Detroit weather team:

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, hot and humid. High 90F.
Tuesday Night: Increasing clouds with a shower or thunderstorm around late. Low 68F.

Wednesday: A shower in the area early in the morning; cooler with intervals of clouds and sunshine. High 76F.
Wednesday Night: Becoming partly cloudy. Low 57F.

Thursday: Sunshine and patchy clouds, pleasant and less humid. High 77F.
Thursday Night: Clear. Low 57F.

Friday: Pleasant with plenty of sunshine. High 80F.
Friday Night: Partly cloudy. Low 62F.

Saturday: Partly sunny with a shower or thunderstorm around in the afternoon. High 80F.
Saturday Night: A shower in spots in the evening; otherwise, mostly cloudy and humid. Low 66F.
