The consensus ozone forecast for Macon for today is 66 parts per billion, averaged over 8 hours
Based on this, the forecasted Air Quality Index is 53 or moderate (Code Yellow for ozone)
At this level the air is probably safe for most people. However, some people are unusually sensitive and react to ozone with an AQI in this range. People with heart and lung diseases such as asthma, and children, are especially susceptible. People in these categories, or people who develop symptoms when they exercise at "yellow" AQI levels, should consider avoiding prolonged outdoor exertion during the late afternoon or early evening when ozone concentrations are highest.
