Birmingham Area Air Quality Forecasts

DateAir Quality Index ForecastResponsible Pollutant
Sunday, April 19, 2015GoodOzone And Particulate Matter 2.5
Monday, April 20, 2015GoodOzone And Particulate Matter 2.5


Forecast Discussion
Saturday-Monday: Unsettled weather will continue into the weekend. Saturday will be another overcast day with rain chances holding off until later in the day. A surface low will develop late Saturday over the lower Mississippi River Valley and move northeastward to the Great Lakes Region by late Sunday. This will create a good chance for rainfall Saturday evening and through the day on Sunday. A lack of forcing mechanisms near the area on Monday will mean only a low chance for rain and the possibility of some breaks in the cloud cover. The rainy and mostly overcast conditions are expected to keep PM2.5 and Ozone in the GREEN range the entire forecast period. ML
