AQI: Good (0 - 50) AQI: Good (0 - 50)
Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.
AQI: Moderate (51 - 100) AQI: Moderate (51 - 100)
Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150) AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150)
Although general public is not likely to be affected at this AQI range, people with lung disease, older adults and children are at a greater risk from exposure to ozone, whereas persons with heart and lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from the presence of particles in the air.
AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200) AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200)
Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.
 AQI:Very Unhealthy (201 - 300) AQI: Very Unhealthy (201 - 300)
Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects.
AQI: Hazardous(301 - 500) AQI: Hazardous (301 - 500)

Forecast Discussion: Friday, November 8, 2019: A warmer southwest flow has established over the area as high pressure has drifted to our east. Cloud cover has limited mixing and particulate is near or in the low Yellow (Moderate) in parts of southern and central Minnesota. Up north AQIs are Green (Good). A weak low pressure will scoot across northern Minnesota during Saturday and will bring more clouds and some light rain/snow showers. Atmospheric mixing will again be relatively limited, and particulate is forecast to be near the Green/Yellow boundary in southern and central Minnesota once again. An Arctic front will push southward through the state Saturday night, and Arctic high pressure with near record cold will build into the upper Midwest for Sunday and the first part of the work week. Air quality will easily be Green/Good on Sunday and again Monday. Particulate may climb towards Yellow on Tuesday as the high pressure drifts overhead and the air becomes a bit stagnant.
