Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels are in the YELLOW range Tuesday as hot, humid conditions continue. Even though the heat and humidity are oppressing, air quality continues to improve as northwest winds bring less pollution into the Triad. A front is slowly sliding down towards NC from the north and keeping our winds from that direction but expect it to offer a break from this heat for Thursday and Friday. Chances for more afternoon thunderstorms will also improve later in the week and help return AQI levels to the GREEN range by Friday. An upper level low will slide through the Ohio Valley this weekend and allow a cooler air mass to fill in behind the trough for early next week. This should offer another break to the heat and humidity as air quality continue to improve through the weekend. (Bodenhamer)
