Synopsis and Discussion

High level cloud cover has increase across the Triad today, trapping elevated particulate matter concentrations in the lower atmosphere to allow air quality levels to rise into the lower Code YELLOW range. Chances of rain increase this evening through Monday morning as an area of low pressure moves northeast along the spine of the Appalachian Mountains. Widespread showers will likely wash out pollution particles tomorrow, dropping air quality levels into the low to middle Code GREEN range. Chilly northwest flow will begin to take hold over the Triad Tuesday, preventing particle pollution levels from rising out of the lower Code GREEN range. Dry high pressure should keep skies clear on Wednesday, with light winds allowing particulate matter concentrations to build into the middle Code GREEN range. (Payne)
