To inform the AQMD 9s 15 million residents about air quality conditions, the AQMD issues an air quality forecast each day and reports current air quality conditions for each numbered Monitoring Area and General Forecast Area depicted here. This air quality information is transmitted to the public through newspapers, television, radio and pager services, through faxes to schools, through recorded messages on the AQMD 9s toll 2free Smog Update telephone line, 1 2800 2CUT 2 SMOG, and on the AQMD 9s Internet Website http://www.aqmd.gov.<br><br> Newspapers, television and radio stations typically will report air quality information using the General Forecast Areas, shown in color below, which are larger groupings of the more specific Air Monitoring Areas. The 1 2800 2CUT 2SMOG (1 2 800 2288 27664) line also provides smog forecast and current smog level information by ZIP code. The AQMD 9s Internet Website provides both forecasts as well as smog levels for that day and the previous day.<br><br> Forecasts for the next day normally are posted by noon.
