Current Estimated PM2.5 AQI
The AQI for PM2.5 is based on the 24-hour average PM2.5 concentration. This data is collected hourly from the Air Quality Monitoring network. In real-time, the full 24 hours of data are not available, so a method was devised to estimate the AQI based on the most recent 12 hours of data. Click for more details on this calculation.

Since atmospheric conditions are variable, the actual peak AQI can be either higher or lower than the estimated AQI. Yesterday's actual peak PM2.5 AQI values »
