Synopsis and Discussion

Particle pollution has increased significantly, Sunday, as Canadian wildfire smoke infiltrates the air mass resulting upper code YELLOW. Increased moisture and winds have helped to keep ozone lower and code GREEN. Ozone will continue lower and code GREEN, Monday through Wednesday as increased chances of thunderstorms each afternoon keeps ozone production lower. Particle pollution will remain higher, low code YELLOW, Monday as the wildfire smoke slowly mixes out. A return to code GREEN for particle pollution is expected Tuesday and Wednesday (GENTRY).
