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: Friday, September 20, 2019: Today, warm southeasterly to southerly winds across Minnesota with temperatures warming into the 70s in the far north while 80s dominate the southern 2/3 of the state. Some locations in SW Minnesota may touch the 90F mark. More humid air is always present. A few thunderstorms over the far northwestern corner of the state. With the return of southerly winds, fine particle pollution is starting to increase per various air monitor/sensor networks in Iowa and southern Minnesota. This pollution is being transported northward from various fires in the lower Mississippi Valley into the southeastern US. Ozone values are also on the increase over the southern 1/3 to 1/2 of the state. Yellow (moderate) AQI values are possible in areas of southern and central Minnesota including the Twin Cities metro area, St. Cloud, and Rochester this afternoon/evening. Green air quality conditions to be the norm for most of northern and north central Minnesota. On Saturday, showers and thunderstorms will overspread the state during the early morning hours and throughout the day. The heaviest storms will likely be across the northern 1/3 of the state while a few localized strong storms may occur over southern parts of the region. Air quality conditions to become all Green for most of the state with a few higher hourly spikes until the storms move through. Sunday, northwest winds behind the frontal system are expected to clear out any pollutants restoring Green AQI conditions statewide. Westerly flow and cooler conditions to continue on Monday before slowly giving way to southerly winds on Tuesday with temperatures once again rebounding into the 70s/80s. AQI will be Green Monday through Wednesday.
