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 and tomorrow, light to moderate north-northeasterly winds will transport a clean air mass into the Minneapolis-St. Paul region. As a result, AQI levels will be Good on both days. Saturday and Sunday, surface high pressure to the north of Minnesota will produce lighter winds in the Twin Cities, limiting pollutant dispersion. However, cool temperatures will limit ozone formation, and pollutant carryover from day to day will be low. Therefore, AQI levels will remain Good on both days. Monday and Tuesday, light to moderate southeasterly winds will develop ahead of an approaching low-pressure system. These winds will increase mixing in the low levels of the atmosphere, effectively dispersing pollutants and yielding Good AQI levels on both days.
