Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality continues code GREEN, Wednesday, as a cooler, cleaner air mass filters in behind an exiting cold front. A deep upper level low will drop into the region Thursday and Friday leading to numerous showers and thunderstorms each afternoon. In addition, brisk NW winds will keep the low level air mass well mixed both days. GOOD air quality will be the result of the unsettled weather Thursday and Friday. High pressure will begin to settle over the area by Saturday allowing for more sunshine and warmer temperatures. Ozone production will increase Saturday, but not enough to push ozone levels any higher than upper code GREEN (GENTRY).
