Air Quality Data - Unedited Hourly Concentrations
Special status notes:
IMPORTANT WINTER WEATHER NOTES: 1) Particle pollution forecasts are for the smaller particles. Particle pollution levels tend to climb on cold, calm, clear nights due to nighttime inversions which act like a cap trapping pollution close to the surface. In river valleys and areas with more emissions, especially from wood smoke, levels can reach the moderate range. 2) Coarse particle pollution is also a concern during the winter months. Sand and salt mixtures dry out after a storm. Winds and traffic can stir up coarse particle pollution on roadways and parking lots.
