Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels should just hold in the YELLOW range once again as high pressure continues to cover the region with high temperatures around the 90 degree mark. Winds have shifted around to the east and humidity levels have decreased slightly for Monday. Conditions should remain about the same through Tuesday but afternoon thunderstorm activity should increase starting Wednesday, and last into Thursday. There is also a chance for a tropical system to slide out of the Gulf and out to sea off the Georgia coast, but most of the energy and moisture will remain south of the Triad. Cooler temperatures will also arrive in the area by Friday. This should help improve air quality for the labor day weekend. (Bodenhamer)
