Synopsis and Discussion

Hourly particle pollution levels started off in the low Code YELLOW range this morning, but the increased dispersion with the growth of the daytime vertical boundary layer has causes hourly levels to drop into the Code GREEN range. This should persist for several more hours until after sunset when particle pollution levels increase once again, but the daily average will likely remain Code GREEN. High pressure will reside over the Triad for the rest of the week, allowing for a continual buildup of concentrations throughout the period as localized wood and leaf building activities increase through the Thanksgiving holiday. With that said, expect particle pollution levels to jump into the low Code YELLOW range and remain there through Friday. (PAYNE)
