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: FORECAST SUMMARY: Monday, December 18th, 2017 through Tuesday, December 26th, 2017 PM-2.5: 24-hour Fine Particulate concentrations will be a mix of Good and Moderate during most of the work week, then mostly Good going into the weekend. FORECAST DISCUSSION Following an active week of snow events throughout Michigan, the week leading up to Christmas looks to be fairly tame. The current work week begins with a weak shortwave that will exit the area during the afternoon hours. We will see some showers lingering during the day but I expect those to wrap up by this evening. Fine particulates will likely run in the Moderate range as temperatures warm above freezing causing a slow snow melt while still maintaining a decent snow pack. Quieter weather is expected during the mid-week period as upper air patterns flatten out into a west-to-east flow. The jet stream will position itself along the US/Canadian border and trap the colder temperatures to the north. The continued slow melt of the snow pack over a cold surface will likely keep our Air Quality in the Moderate range. Wednesday winds looks to be a bit more northerly so that may help to keep particulate numbers down. Colder air looks to return following the passage of a frontal system on Friday. That should also clean things out and return our Air Quality back to Good for the weekend. The cooler temperatures and Good Air Quality should persist through Christmas day. EXTENDED FORECAST: Air Quality is expected to be mostly Good going into Christmas week. Forecast updated by Jim Haywood: Monday, December 18th, 2017 Next forecast update: Tuesday, November 26th, 2017
