Synopsis and Discussion

With a frontal boundary well to the south of the Triad and high pressure building from the west, skies have cleared and northerly winds have allowed for air quality levels to rise into the middle to upper Code GREEN range today. The ridge of high pressure will continue to build south overnight and reside over the Carolinas throughout the day Thursday, keeping ozone and particle pollution levels well within the Code GREEN range. The high pressure ridge begins to slide offshore late Thursday, allowing southwesterly flow to return to the area by Friday morning. Southwest winds are expected to persist into the weekend, allowing for temperatures to rise to the mid-70s by Saturday afternoon. With that said, expect air quality levels follow suit and rise into the upper Code GREEN range Friday and Saturday (PAYNE)
