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: High pressure remains firmly entrenched across the Triad this afternoon, with light winds and sunny skies allowing for air quality levels to rise into the low Code YELLOW range. The ridge of high pressure begins to weaken tomorrow as winds as an influx of a deep plume of moisture gradually moves in from the south in the afternoon during the total solar eclipse. However, the ridge of high pressure will likely hold long enough to keep any storms from developing to allow air quality levels to rise into the lower Code YELLOW range Monday. Southwesterly winds gradually intensify through the day on Tuesday as a cold front approaches from the west. This should generate enough dispersion to drop air quality levels into the upper Code GREEN range. Clouds and scattered showers/storms resulting from the passage of the cold front will likely keep ozone and particle pollution levels in the middle to upper Code GREEN range on Wednesday. (Payne)
