Air Quality Forecast

Font Size Extra Large Font Size Large Font Size Default



The air quality forecast for Friday, January 30, is for more favorable conditions.  Air Quality Levels will be GOOD throughout the day.

Air quality reports use the Air Quality Index, which represents the higher of two pollutants - PM2.5 or ozone. For ground-level ozone (O3), these values are based upon an 8-hour running average. For ground-level particulate matter with a diameter less than 2.5 microns (PM2.5), these values are based upon a 24-hour daily average.
