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: Thanksgiving Day will be chilly but sunny and dry. Winds will subside as high pressure builds into the Mid-Atlantic region, but there will be enough vertical mixing of the regionally clean air mass to keep particles in the Good range. Sunny skies will persist on Black Friday, and temperatures will return to around average as high pressure moves offshore in the afternoon, setting up southerly flow. Warm air arriving aloft will limit vertical mixing, allowing particles to rise to the Good/Moderate threshold. Saturday will be even warmer ahead of another cold front arriving from the west in the late afternoon. Rain is possible in the morning from a storm moving up along the Atlantic coast. Increasing atmospheric humidity and a very strong surface inversion will push particles a bit higher in the Moderate range. Temperatures will plummet again on Sunday as another round of cold and dry air surges into the state behind Saturday’s cold frontal passage. Gusty northwesterly winds will help to return particles to the Good range. Cold and sunny weather will persist on Monday. A clean northwesterly transport pattern will allow Good air quality to continue. -Huff
