Today's air quality forecast: Moderate

Today's air quality forecast for Middle Georgia is moderate or code yellow. The consensus ozone forecast is:

Ozone: 67 ppbv, averaged over 8 hours.

Air Quality Index score: 73

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, especially at the higher values (in the 80s and 90s).

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.
