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: Ozone concentrations are being held down in the Green category in this hot and humid air mass as of 3 pm on Monday afternoon. A cold front will work its way through the state from west-to-east beginning late tonight, pushing offshore by Tuesday morning. The result will be a tug-of-war between clean sourcing from the NW and a much drier air mass that will be more efficient for ozone production. We expect many zones to reach near the green-yellow threshold, but falling just short of attaining yellow conditions. However, NW'rly wind direction historically favors code YELLOW for the Pee Dee and Trient zones, pushing these zones over the threshold, while all other zones are forecast to remain at high Code GREEN.
