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.

Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Tuesday afternoon, low pressure was located over eastern North Carolina and was moving slowly north-northeastward. This storm will continue to move towards Cape Cod over the next 48 hours, weakening as it does so. Brisk easterly winds this afternoon have kept fine particulate in the good range. Periods of rain this evening will taper to showers and drizzle overnight. Temperatures will drop only into the lower 50s overnight. *** Wednesday's forecast: Morning clouds and drizzle will yield to a little sunshine late in the afternoon. Temperatures will respond by rising into the lower 70s, and while fine particulate will rise some, it will remain in the upper good range. Partly cloudy Wednesday night with lows in the middle 50s. *** Extended forecast: The latter part of the week will be much warmer as winds shift into the southwest on Thursday with times of clouds and sunshine along with a summer like afternoon. Highs will soar into the lower 80s. Light south winds will bring fine particulate and perhaps ozone to the moderate range. A weak cool front moves through Thursday night with a shower or thunderstorm. Not as warm on Friday with periods of clouds and sunshine with highs a few degrees cooler than Thursday. Light winds will still promote moderate air quality. A cold front may affect us with showers and a thunderstorm Saturday, then Sunday will cool down with more clouds than sunshine. Fine particulate will start the weekend moderate, but onshore flow behind the cold front Sunday will result in particles improving to the good range.---McAuliffe
