Triad Air Quality
Synopsis and Discussion
Skies over the Triad today may appear a bit more hazier than normal with Alaskan and central Canadian wildfire smoke settling over the area. The increase in particulates from this event should push particle pollution levels into the low to middle Code YELLOW range today. High pressure over the Great Lakes region and another over the Gulf of Mexico will create a conveyor belt of moisture moving from west to east across the Carolinas tomorrow afternoon and through Independence Day. Chances of scattered showers and storms increase through the period, with the highest chances in the afternoon each day. With that said, we can expect ozone and particulate matter concentrations to gradually fall into the middle to upper Code GREEN range by the weekend. (PAYNE)
