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: Ground level ozone concentrations are holding mostly in the GREEN category on this Monday afternoon, except southern CSRA could peak an isolated yellow. Low pressure over the Mid-Atlantic US states will be slow to depart through the Northeast US on Tuesday. Mid-upper levels will remain rather dry with some degree of moisture remaining in the low level environment, particularly across the Sandhills and Coastal Plain region. Given the dry air that is in place aloft, greater precursor loads from upwind regions to the west could mix in at the surface through Midlands and CSRA to allow ozone readings to push into the YELLOW range. With rather light winds in the Catawba region, local urban emissions could also allow ozone readings to reach moderate (YELLOW) on Tuesday there as well. Still relatively clean air (GREEN ozone levels) is anticipated elsewhere across the state.
