Triad Air Quality
Synopsis and Discussion
Northerly to northwesterly flow will continue to usher in cleaner and colder air associated with high pressure building in from the west, causing particle pollution levels to bottom out in the low Code GREEN range today and tomorrow. The aforementioned high pressure ridge will continue to hold through Sunday morning until it begins to slide off to the east Sunday afternoon. Winds are expected to shift southwesterly ahead of an approaching cold front, which may cause a slight buildup of particulate matter ahead of the boundary to push air quality levels into the middle Code GREEN range. Light showers are expected on Monday with the front's passage, keeping particle pollution levels in the middle Code GREEN range. (PAYNE)
