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: More summer-like conditions will return to the State of Delaware on Friday. Humidity will begin to rise, but it will still be one final delightful day before the weather turns unsettled over the weekend. Light/calm surface winds on Friday morning will gradually increase to sustained southeasterly winds in the afternoon. Mostly sunny skies and stagnating morning winds will be sufficient to allow ozone to persist in the Moderate range, mainly in northern Delaware. Particles will rise in response to increasing humidity but remain in the Good range. **Extended Forecast: An extended string of unsettled days will begin on Saturday as a coastal low pressure system lifts northward along the Atlantic coast. Skies will be mostly cloudy with widespread and locally heavy precipitation. These conditions and strong onshore (easterly) flow both aloft and at the surface will ensure Good air quality on Saturday. Although not as widespread, scattered showers will continue throughout the day on Sunday. Sustained southerly surface winds and another day of strong onshore flow will result in persistent Good air quality. -Enlow/Huff
