Synopsis and Discussion

Gusty northwest winds in the wake of a departing cold front have ushered in a cooler and cleaner air mass to keep air quality levels well within the Code GREEN range. Mild and dry conditions are expected for tomorrow as a ridge of high pressure builds over the Triad, keeping ozone and particle pollution levels in the middle Code GREEN range. Temperatures begin to slowly rebound through the day Friday as the aforementioned high pressure ridge begins to slide offshore as a cold front approaches from the west. Winds are expected to gradually increase from the south through the afternoon and evening, elevating air quality levels into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. A cold front moves through the Triad during the morning hours on Saturday, with mostly cloudy skies and periodic showers dropping ozone and particle pollution levels into the low to middle Code GREEN range.
