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.

Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: Low pressure developing off the Virginia coast is bringing some light snow in our direction this Friday afternoon. The low will slowly pull to the northeast away from the coast by this evening, and as it does, snow will come to an end. Accumulations will range from a dusting across the west to an inch or two across parts of Lebanon, Lancaster, and southeastern York counties. Partly cloudy later on overnight with low temperatures falling back to near 20 degrees. *** Saturday's forecast: Clouds for the most part Saturday, with a sunny break here and there. Enough mixing should prevail to where fine particulate remains down in the good range. A little milder Saturday with highs close to 40 degrees. Rather cloudy Saturday night and not as cold. *** Sunday's forecast: Another mostly cloudy is in store for Sunday, but with light winds and temperatures around 40 degrees, it will feel better outside. On the other hand, those light winds will limit mixing, so fine particulate levels will rise to moderate once more. *** Monday's forecast: A bit of rain mixed with snow Monday morning, then overcast Monday afternoon with a rain shower or two as temperatures rise into the middle 40s. Mixing will remain limited, so PM2.5 averages will reach into the moderate range. *** Extended forecast: The next cold front will move through with a couple of rain showers Tuesday, and the mildest air of the forecast period will likely come out ahead of it on southwesterly winds as temperatures climb close to 50 degrees. Fine particulate levels will average in the upper good to lower moderate range. A brief shot of colder air will sweep back in on Wednesday, before moderation in temperatures occurs for the late week period.---McAuliffe
