Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels are Code GREEN today with cloudy skies across the Triad today as a frontal boundary has stalled across central NC today. The energy associated with the frontal boundary is expected to push off slowly to the east this evening through tomorrow morning, allowing for high pressure to build across the Carolinas for the weekend. It is possible some isolated showers and storms may form in the vicinity of the decaying front tomorrow, but the increase in solar radiation as morning cloud cover diminishes should allow for ozone levels to rise into the lower Code YELLOW range tomorrow afternoon. The warming trend continues through Sunday and Monday as high pressure ridging remains in place over the Triad, elevating air quality levels into the low to middle Code YELLOW range. Some upper level disturbances moving in from the northwest could potentially trigger showers/storms each afternoon to limit pollution production, but precipitation coverage should remain isolated at best and have minimal effect on AQI.
