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: Arizona will remain underneath a mild weather pattern today and through the weekend. This will ultimately make for a pleasant weekend as high temperatures will be steady in the low 70s and winds will be light. Clouds look to increase a little by Sunday morning as well. Air quality-wise, both PM-10 and PM-2.5 will have the potential for Moderate Air Quality Index (AQI) levels this weekend, particularly PM-2.5. PM-10 is expected to decrease as work-week activities diminish; Good PM-10 AQI levels are possible by Sunday. PM-2.5, however, is expected to increase, as recreational burning activity increases over the weekend. Cooler overnight temperatures will support a stronger inversion, which helps to trap pollutants near the surface. The "Brown Cloud" marks the presence of the inversion, which will appear most pronounced in the morning and evening hours. The “Burn Cleaner, Burn Better” campaign is now underway in Maricopa County. This campaign encourages alternative burning methods, other than wood, to reduce or eliminate unnecessary particulate emissions that are harmful to sensitive people.

Until then, have a great weekend! –J.Malloy/M.Graves Last Update: Friday, December 9, 2016, 9:05 AM
