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: Today, moderate east-northeasterly winds will aid pollutant dispersion and gradually bring clean air into the Twin Cities, yielding Good AQI levels. Tomorrow, a low pressure systems moving south of Minnesota will generate light northerly winds, transporting clean air into the Twin Cities and keeping AQI levels Good. Monday and Tuesday, high pressure over south-central Canada will generate light north-northeasterly winds in Minneapolis-St. Paul, continuing to bring a cleaner air mass into the region. These conditions will result in Good AQI levels on both days. Wednesday, as the surface high pressure over south-central Canada moves east, winds will shift to east-southeasterly in Minnesota, transporting regional pollutants into Minneapolis St. Paul. However, pollutant carryover from previous days will be low. Therefore, AQI levels will remain Good. Thursday, a weak low pressure system will move through Minnesota, enhancing mixing in the atmosphere and shifting winds to northwesterly at the surface. These conditions will disperse pollutants, yielding Good AQI levels.
