Synopsis and Discussion

Once again ozone levels are climbing to the lower YELLOW range, Thursday afternoon, in response to the hot, stagnant conditions. A backdoor cold front will begin to influence the region, Friday, as it approaches the Triad from the NE. Although, ozone will likely drop back to code GREEN, Friday, particle pollution buildup ahead of the front will lead to low to mid code YELLOW readings. Air pollution will decrease to code GREEN for all pollutants, over the weekend, as cool, clean high pressure, centered over the NE US builds into the Triad (GENTRY).
