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: High pressure will dominate the region over the weekend. On Saturday, initially clean conditions and Good air quality will be replaced with increased particle concentrations by evening as winds slacken and the nocturnal inversion takes hold. While Saturday will have daily average fine particle concentrations in the Good range, Sunday will likely yield threshold Good/Moderate to Moderate air quality conditions region wide as cloudy skies and low mixing heights will be the norm. Increased southerly winds ahead of another rain producing cold front on Monday will slowly return the region towards Good air quality for the daily average, which should continue in to early next week. -MDE
