Synopsis and Discussion

Despite the sun periodically peeking through the cloud deck today, the lack of wind dispersion has allow for particulate matter concentrations to remain close to the surface to help elevate air quality levels into the lower Code YELLOW range. Weak high pressure will continue to hold overnight into Friday morning to help sustain a wedge of cold air over the Triad. This should help keep elevated particle pollution levels into tomorrow afternoon. However, a cold front moving into the region from the west should allow for an increase in rainfall rates that should be intense enough to wash out pollution particles and drop air quality levels to Code GREEN. Dry and mild weather is on tap for the weekend, with westerly winds generating plenty of low-level dispersion to keep air quality levels Code GREEN. (Payne)
