SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah's air quality has been less than pleasant for most of this week, as winter-time inversion conditions have trapped hazardous smog in the valleys along the Wasatch Front.

Several groups are coming together to hold a clean air rally this weekend, and they anticipate it will be the largest such rally in recent state history.

On Friday, Brian Moench of Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment, Alicia Conwell of Communities for Clean Air and Tina Taft of Utah Moms for Clean Air came to the FOX 13 News studio to discuss air quality and the upcoming rally. Check out the video for more information.

The "Clean Air, No Excuses" rally is scheduled for noon Saturday on the steps of the Utah State Capitol.
