Triad Air Quality
Synopsis and Discussion
With some dispersion occuring before sunrise today, particle pollution levels will likely remain in the upper Code GREEN range for Tuesday. There may possibly be some elevated particle pollution levels ahead of an upper level disturbance moving out of the Gulf of Mexico early Wednesday, but the cleaner, moist airmass in its wake will likely keep particle pollution levels in the mid to upper Code GREEN range on Wednesday. By Wednesday evening, a cold front and its associated shower activity will depart the Triad and allow for a cold Canadian airmass to build in overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. With cold, clean air being currently observed over south central Canada, particle pollution levels will likely bottom out into the low to mid Code GREEN range Thursday. By Friday, the Canadian high pressure ridge will push offshore and allow for the return of southwest flow across the area on Friday, causing particulate matter concentrations to slightly rise into the mid to upper Code GREEN range (PAYNE).
