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: At 2 p.m. EDT this Thursday afternoon, high pressure was bringing mostly sunny skies and warm summerlike conditions to the area. Summer will continue to stick around over the next few days in spite of the calendar saying fall will arrive at 10:21 a.m. EDT Friday morning. This is because a building ridge of high pressure, both at the surface and aloft, will allow for clear skies and effectively block any chilly air masses from Canada from moving southward for the near future. So, enjoy the unseasonably warm conditions while they last. With the sunshine, warmth, and limited mixing, we will have to be concerned about both ozone and PM2.5 buildups as we go into the weekend, with moderate readings from both of these pollutants possible. For tonight, we will have another mostly clear and mild night with low temperatures falling back into the lower and middle 60s. *** Friday's forecast: Plenty of sunshine will be in the weather picture for the day Friday. A northerly flow should maintain low levels of ozone, but fine particulate may go low moderate in concentration. Afternoon temperatures will top out in the middle 80s. Clear skies again Friday night with lows close to 60 degrees. *** Extended forecast: Unseasonably warm conditions will continue over the weekend, with high temperatures in some locations rising close to the 90 degree mark late in the weekend into early next week. Lesser northerly flow and the summerlike warmth may push ozone well into the moderate range, with stagnant, recirculating air also keeping PM2.5 in the moderate range.---McAuliffe
