PHOENIX (AP) -- A high pollution advisory has been issued for the Phoenix metropolitan area.

That's because of a powerful cold front heading into the area Wednesday.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality says the cooler temperatures are expected to bring strong winds to the area along with potential for blowing dust in the Phoenix metro area.

The Maricopa County Air Quality Department is enforcing a mandatory "No Burn Day" restriction for Wednesday.
