The map below shows the current highest PM-2.5 24-hour levels measured in micrograms per cubic meter (local conditions) (µg/m³ LC) for each of the metropolitan or other areas across Virginia where PM-2.5 is measured by the Virginia DEQ. More detailed maps showing the current 24-hour PM-2.5 levels measured at each site in a particular area are available by clicking on the boxes on the map. These levels are based on data measured at the Virginia DEQ's continuous air monitoring stations and may include data from local governments and private monitoring networks.
The latest imagery available is for Sunday March 26, 2017 12:00 EDT.
The daily average color-coding is based on the 24-hour standard levels for PM-2.5.
