Synopsis and Discussion

High pressure continues to build in from the west today, keeping skies clear and dry to elevate particle pollution levels into the middle Code GREEN range. Particulate matter concentrations will continue to increase through the weekend as the aforementioned ridge of high pressure settles over the Triad. This high pressure ridge should limit dispersion and help elevate air quality levels into the upper Code GREEN range. A weak backdoor front approaches the Triad on Monday, potentially elevating particle pollution levels into the lower Code YELLOW range for a few hours. But at this time, the daily average for particulate matter concentrations should remain Code GREEN. (Payne)
