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: Fri, Jan 24, 2020: Continued cloudy skies across all of Minnesota today with occasional flurries/light snow showers over the Arrowhead and eastern/southeastern portions of the state. Light north-northwest winds continue to bring in slightly drier and cleaner air as air quality has improved from Yellow (moderate) to Green (good) over much of southern Minnesota. Saturday will see continued clouds and light wind flow with temperatures in the mid 20s to mid 30s statewide. Despite the somewhat murky conditions, air quality will continue Green in most areas as northerly flow becomes more westerly during the day as weak high pressure settles in over western portions of the state. On Sunday, winds will become northerly, but on the light side with clouds continuing and few snow flurries. A morning inversion will allow for some pollutant trapping; however, sustained Yellow air quality conditions are not expected at most locations. Continued clouds Monday and Tuesday as weak high pressure moves across the state. Increasing south-southwesterly flow late Tuesday into Wednesday will allow for slightly warmer conditions and snow melt, but continued clouds. Air quality conditions expected to be Green for the majority of the time; however, overall AQI numbers to slowly climb as pollutants begin to build over the region.
