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 Wednesday afternoon, a large area of high pressure was moving southeastward into the area from the Great Lakes. Clean and unseasonably cold northwesterly winds were producing low levels of fine particulate. Tonight, the high will be moving overhead, resulting in a reduction of winds but very cold air as low temperatures drop into the upper teens. *** Thursday's forecast: High pressure overhead early in the day will start to shift off to the east in the afternoon, and with light winds and more sunshine, it will feel nicer outside. Temperatures should max out in the upper 40s, and with very dry air present, fine particulate will have a hard time getting out of the good range. Clouds will increase and thicken Thursday night with low temperatures in the upper 20s. *** Extended forecast: A more south to southwesterly flow will warm things up for the weekend. Rather cloudy Friday with a little rain during the midday, and it might begin as a bit of freezing rain or sleet if it arrives earlier in the morning. Lighter winds and warmer air advection will bring fine particulate into the lower moderate range Friday. Cloudy to partly sunny, but rather mild Saturday afternoon as a warm front will be north of us, and temperatures soar close to 70 degrees. Moderate air quality is likely in most of the region in respect to PM2.5. Rather cloudy and a little cooler Sunday with light south to southeast winds keeping fine particulate moderate. Another round of rain is possible Sunday night into Monday, then another low pressure area brings another bout of wet weather late Tuesday into Wednesday.---McAuliffe
