Synopsis and Discussion

Dry and breezy conditions have kept pollution concentrations from accumulating close to urban centers. However, thorough mixing in the lower levels of the atmosphere has kept ozone levels elevated enough to warrant lower Code YELLOW AQI for the Triad. Despite weakening winds tomorrow as a result of surface ridge residing over the Triad, conditions will likely remain similar to today to keep air quality levels in the lower Code YELLOW range. A warm front moves through the area tomorrow with a trailing cold front moving in from the west that will likely be the source of scattered showers and storms Wednesday afternoon and evening. With that said, ozone and particle pollution levels will likely fall into the upper Code GREEN range before sunset. Drier and cooler air moves into the Triad on Thursday, dropping air quality levels into the middle Code GREEB range. (Payne)
