... Air quality awareness week continues...

This is an opportunity to learn more about air quality
and how it affects your health.

Today we highlight the tools available to help you get air
quality information.

Over the past decade... more state and local agencies have begun
air quality forecasting for their communities.
Today... more than 300 cities nationwide are issuing
air quality forecasts based on predicted concentrations of
known pollutants such as ozone and particle pollution.

For those localities forecasting air quality... NOAA forecast
guidance is currently provided to state and local agency
forecasters improving their ability to predict the
onset... severity and duration of poor air quality.
In addition... NOAA currently provides comprehensive
air quality predictions at airquality... dot... weather... dot gov
with hour by hour information about
ozone... smoke from wildfires... and dust from dust storms
for cities... suburbs and rural communities.

That web site again is... airquality... dot... weather... dot gov.

For up to date air quality information... the airnow Mobile app
is available to provide real time air quality information that
you can use to protect your health when planning your day. This
smartphone app includes location specific reports on current
air quality and air quality forecasts for both ozone and fine
particle pollution. In addition... the EPA enviroflash tool
provides air quality forecasts and action day notifications
for participating communities via email. Enviroflash provides
instant information that can be customized for each users needs.

Tomorrow... we will learn about what you can do to make
the air cleaner.
