Particle pollution remains code YELLOW throughout the Triad, Wednesday, with a stagnant air mass in place. Weak high pressure will be in control of the weather through the end of the week providing cool, clear nights and warm, sunny afternoons. Additionally, winds will be light leading to strong overnight inversions and only light afternoon mixing. Expect particle pollution to continue in the MODERATE range Thursday and Friday. A cold front will push across the state, Saturday, providing a new, cleaner code GREEN air mass to start the weekend NOTE: The state of North Carolina has issued a burn ban across the entire state until further notice (GENTRY).
