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.

FORECAST DISCUSSION
 
Wednesday: A cold front will move through the area early in the morning. There may be some rainfall with the frontal passage. A cooler and drier air mass will move into the area behind the front to clear the skies and keep high temperatures to the mid 70s. Winds will be from the northwest at 5-15 mph with gusts over 20 mph. These weather conditions will keep PM2.5 and Ozone well within the green range. ML
