Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels should hold in the GREEN range Thursday as clouds begin to move out of the region. Clear skies and cooler temperatures will create beautiful weather conditions for the start of the holiday weekend. AQI values should also remain in the GREEN range through Saturday as highs hold in the 70s and clean air pushes in from the northwest. A ridge will begin to move towards NC from the deep south and increase temperatures by Sunday so expect AQI readings to increase back into the YELLOW range. Memorial Day could see that trend continue as Ozone readings could push into the mid to upper YELLOW range. (Bodenhamer)
