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)
Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.

Forecast Discussion: Updated Tuesday, May 22, 2018 An upper level low pressure system currently located over the borders of California/Arizona/Nevada and will slowly weaken and move northeast. The biggest impact locally will be breezy to occasionally gusty winds. Some spotty blowing dust is expected, however the winds aren’t expected to be strong enough to cause widespread blowing dust. Therefore the highest PM10 forecast for today is in the mid-moderate range on the AQI scale. Lighter winds on Wednesday and Thursday along with early morning temperature inversions are going to trap particulates close to the ground. Local dust generating activities in/around Hidden Valley are expected to impact the overall PM10 levels and they are forecast to be in the mid-upper range of the moderate AQI category on Wednesday and Thursday. Another upper level low pressure system from the Pacific will approach the California coast later this week which will create more unstable atmospheric conditions. So a buildup of early morning PM10 levels will be less likely for Friday and this upcoming weekend. The upper level low pressure system will bring breezy conditions over this upcoming holiday weekend. Stay tuned. Meanwhile the breezy conditions today will inhibit ozone formation and so the forecasted levels are in the good to low moderate. Lighter winds and slightly warmer temperature for the middle of the work week mean higher ozone levels (i.e. mid-moderate). Check back on Wednesday for an updated air quality forecast.
