Synopsis and Discussion

An upper level low over the state today has generated enough cloud cover over the Triad this afternoon to keep air quality levels in the upper Code GREEN range. The aforementioned upper low will move offshore tonight and allow for high pressure to build in across the Piedmont starting early Tuesday. With the aforementioned high pressure ridge keeping a lid on storm development and allowing skies to be mostly sunny, expect air quality levels to rise into the low Code YELLOW range tomorrow. The high pressure ridge is expected to reside over the Triad throughout the rest of the week, which will keep a lid on any storm development and bring hot, summer-like temperatures through the end of the week. Thus, we can expect air quality levels to continue to rise into the middle to upper Code YELLOW range Wednesday and Thursday. (PAYNE)
