Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels are moving into the YELLOW range as southerly winds push in higher pollution concentrations from the south. Most of this is from wildfires in our state southeast of the Triad but some of it could be from the fires in eastern Georgia and northern Florida. Wind directions are not going to change very much so the hazy skies should continue through Friday. A weak frontal boundary will slide through the Triad tonight and trigger showers during the overnight hours and potentially Friday morning. YELLOW AQI levels will continue for Friday. Surface winds will not be affected much as they remain out of the south and southwest for the next few days. Much warmer air will track across the region Saturday as highs reach into the upper 80s. AQI levels will respond and be in the mid-YELLOW range Saturday and Sunday. (Bodenhamer)
