Synopsis and Discussion

Partly cloudy skies with the potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected Wednesday and Thursday as a frontal boundary stalls out across the southern half of the state before slowly retrograding northward on Thursday. As a surface low treks eastward on Friday, its associated cold front will then start to pass across the state. This will bring increased cloud cover and a greater potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms to the Triad area. Ozone concentrations will likely be elevated in the Code YELLOW range both Wednesday and Thursday, before dropping into the upper Code GREEN range on Friday as cloud cover and convection potential increases. Particle pollution concentrations are expected to hover near the upper Code GREEN/lower Code YELLOW threshold through the end of the work week.(BRAY)
