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: Monday, March 18, 2019: High pressure has settled in across the Dakotas/southern Minnesota with a morning inversion allowing some trapping of pollutants over central and southern areas of the state with Yellow (moderate) air quality index conditions. Daytime sunshine and light winds have allowed some mixing of the pollutants with many locations improving to Green (good). On Tuesday, the surface high pressure ridge will move slowly across the state with a morning inversion allowing for Yellow (moderate) AQI conditions due to trapped pollutants; but, improvement in many location to Green (good). The inner core of the Twin Cities metro and areas of southeast Minnesota are expected to remain in the low end of the Yellow (moderate) category. An improvement to Green (good) AQI category statewide is expected on Wednesday as high pressure moves east and a weak upper-level disturbance sweeps across the state with clouds, a few flurries, and increased winds to allow for good mixing of pollutants. Continued Green (good) AQI conditions are expected on Thursday.
