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)

Forecast Discussion: Today, northerly winds will transport a clean air mass into the Twin Cities, and cloudy skies will reduce ozone formation. As a result, AQI levels will be Good. Tomorrow, north-northeasterly winds will persist in Minneapolis-St. Paul, continuing to transport a clean air mass into the region. Therefore, despite partly sunny skies and warming temperatures enhancing ozone formation, AQI levels will be Good. Thursday and Friday, light to moderate south-southeasterly winds will transport pollutants into the Twin Cities. In addition, partly to mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures will support ozone formation. As a result, AQI levels will be low-Moderate on both days. Saturday and Sunday, light winds will reduce pollutant dispersion, and sunny, warm temperatures will enhance ozone formation. Therefore, AQI levels will remain low-Moderate on both days.
