Synopsis and Discussion

The air mass currently residing over the Triad remains quite moist, which has hampered the production of ozone pollution. Hourly ozone concentrations may approach low Code YELLOW levels later in the afternoon (some isolated showers may prevent growth), but should not accumulate enough hours to exceed the upper Code GREEN range. More of the same is expected for tomorrow as a weak surface trough remains draped across the Piedmont, becoming the focus of shower/storm development in the afternoon. With that said, expect air quality levels to remain in the upper Code GREEN range. An upper level trough approaches the eastern United States on Friday, providing deep moisture influx across the Carolinas into the weekend. With that said, ozone production will likely struggle despite the rise in temperatures and air quality levels should remain in the upper Code GREEN range. (Payne)
