Synopsis and Discussion

High pressure continues to reside over the Triad today, keeping skies clear and dry to elevate air quality levels into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. This ridge of high pressure will remain over the Carolinas the rest of the week, with light winds allowing for very little dispersion of pollution particles. Therefore, each day's pollution production will continue to improve upon the previous day's ozone and particle pollution concentrations to reach the upper Code GREEN range by the end of the week. The ridge begins to shift offshore late Friday and through Saturday, with above average temperatures expected to allow ozone and particle pollution levels to reach the upper end of the Code GREEN range.
