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: 2/15 - Increasing humidity, southwesterly winds, and temperatures reaching the mid 60s will make it feel more like spring than winter. Air quality will rise into the moderate range for Thursday. 2/16 - A cold front passing through the region will bring brief showers followed by gusty winds that will provide plenty of atmospheric mixing to keep air quality in the good range for Friday. 2/17 - Cooler temperatures, light winds, and a wintry mix will allow particle concentrations to rise slightly but remain in the good category. 2/18 - High temperatures reaching the upper 40s, light westerly winds, and a potentially light snow-pack will help keep levels of fine particulates in the upper good range. 2/19 - A chance of light rain in the afternoon with increasing humidity and temperatures in the 50s will allow particles to remain in the upper good range. 2/20 - Another round of showers are expected to pass through the region on Tuesday and will provide warm yet damp conditions. As a result, air quality will remain in the upper good category with the potential of reaching the low moderate range.
