Synopsis and Discussion

Morning clouds continue to break up this afternoon to allow for the sun to destabilize the atmosphere ahead of the cold front slowly working its way across the state this afternoon. Scattered showers and thunderstorms working their way east should wash out any elevated ozone concentrations and keep air quality levels Code GREEN today. The aforementioned frontal boundary will continue to linger across central North Carolina tomorrow, but the cloud deck is expected to break earlier in the day to allow for an increase in ozone production throughout the day on Wednesday. With that said, expect air quality levels to rise into the middle to upper Code GREEN range prior to another round of scattered showers and storms later in the afternoon. Cooler and drier conditions are expected through the end of the week as an upper level low pressure system digs southward from the Great Lakes region into the Ohio Valley. This should usher in fall-like conditions across the Triad Thursday and Friday, with mostly sunny skies allowing for ozone levels to rise into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. (PAYNE)
