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.

Forecast Discussion: FORECAST SUMMARY: Monday, October 15th, 2018 through Monday, October 22nd, 2018 Ozone: 8-hour Ozone concentrations will be in the Good range. PM-2.5: 24-hour Fine Particulate concentrations will also be mostly Good. FORECAST DISCUSSION: An active weather pattern will be experienced this week as fronts pass through roughly every other day bringing chances for precipitation. The first comes through early Monday, another Wednesday, and then another on Friday. Conditions will be breezy throughout the week, even when winds turn southwesterly ahead of frontal systems. With the atmosphere being well mixed, stagnant conditions will not set up and pollution levels will remain Good for both ozone and fine particulate through Friday. Temperatures will be cool, and the potential exists for frost or freeze conditions during the period. Also, some areas may see their first snow flakes of the season this week. EXTENDED FORECAST: Extended models show much of the same into early next week; a cooler pattern in place with windy conditions. Air quality through early next week is expected to remain generally Good for both pollutants.
