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: Current Conditions: What a difference a day makes! Temperatures this afternoon are running almost 40 degrees colder than the record, summer like readings at this time Wednesday, as a stationary front is draped just to our south. Areas of cold rain are riding across our area, and the rain coupled with a chilly northeast wind, is bringing very good air quality. Overcast and cold tonight with rain diminishing to drizzle as temperatures fall into the middle 30s. *** Friday's forecast: Rainy periods are again a reality for Friday, with a continued chill in the air as high temperatures only make it to the 40 degree mark. Once again, a plethora of precipitation will act to keep fine particulate levels low. *** Extended forecast: The stationary frontal boundary currently south of us will bounce back northward as a warm front sometime Saturday, but any warm up will be slow as the front sluggishly sneaks through. Plenty of mixing and rainfall again keeps PM2.5 concentrations low. A cold front passing through Sunday afternoon will finally dry things out by late in the day, and with the return of the sun, Sunday might end up being the warmest day of the period. High pressure then builds in and brings dry conditions for the early part of next week with temperatures still averaging above normal for the end of February. Adequate mixing should keep fine particulate in the good range for most of the extended period.---McAuliffe
