Air Quality Forecast

Air quality forecasts are issued every day of the year for the Birmingham area and are based on the Air Quality Index (AQI). The AQI is a color-coded scale that reports how clean or polluted the air is and the associated health effects.

The Jefferson County Department of Health forecasts fine particles (PM2.5) year-round and the Alabama Department of Environmental Management forecasts Ozone (O3) during the warm season.

An Air Quality Alert is issued when the AQI is forecast to reach 101 or higher. The public is encouraged to decrease their personal emissions on days with higher pollution levels.

Friday-Monday: Surface high pressure will create mostly sunny skies on Friday. On Saturday, a subtropical/tropical system will quickly move northeast from the northern Gulf to the panhandle of FL and through southern GA. Moisture pulled around to the backside of the system will create cloudy skies and a chance for rainfall. Cloud cover will decrease with dry conditions on Sunday as the system moves well to the northeast of the area. A trough moving across the central US on Sunday will spur the development of a surface low that will push a cold front into the area late on Monday. Clouds will be increasing throughout the day on Monday with a great chance for rainfall later in the day as the front approaches the area. PM2.5 is expected to be in the green range through Monday.
