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)

Forecast Discussion: 11/8 - Air quality is forecast to be in the good category due to a passing cold front and high winds. 11/9 - As high pressure builds over the Mid-Atlantic, winds will become light with partly sunny skies. This will result in levels of fine particulates rising slightly, but remaining in the good category. 11/10 - Air quality will remain in the good category with levels of fine particulates slightly rising into the upper good category for Northern portions of the state. 11/11 - Air quality is forecast to remain in the good category, with a chance of fine particle concentrations reaching the moderate category, due to light and variable winds ahead of a developing low pressure system. 11/12 - Good air quality will persist on Tuesday with the chance of wintry precipitation.
