Synopsis and Discussion

Partly cloudy skies with primarily northerly winds are expected through Thursday due to a surface high pressure system situated to the north west of North Carolina. On Tuesday, partly to mostly cloudy skies will allow ozone levels to hover near the upper Code GREEN/lower Code YELLOW threshold. However, as the high builds in on Wednesday, partly to mostly clear skies are expected which will likely elevate ozone levels into the Code YELLOW range both days. With a fairly stagnant air mass in place, particle pollution concentrations are likely to slowly elevate during the period, with concentrations remaining in the Code YELLOW range through Thursday.
