Air quality levels are in the GREEN range Friday as cold air continues to sweep into the state. Northwest winds will continue to keep our temperatures lower than what we are used to right now as a high pressure area drifts eastward. This high will eventually slide to our east and allow winds to turn out of the southwest by Sunday and help increase our temperatures back to around normal levels. This will allow AQI readings to return to the YELLOW range Monday as another cold front presses in from the west by Tuesday and brings more cold weather back to the Piedmont. (Bodenhamer)
