Synopsis and Discussion

While ozone remains code GREEN, Wednesday, particle pollution levels have climbed into the low YELLOW category. The higher readings are in response to light winds and minimal vertical air mass mixing. Weak high pressure, centered overhead Thursday, will hold on one more day. As a result, light winds will help maintain low code YELLOW particle pollution. For Friday and Saturday, a series of disturbances will slide along a stalled front, to the south of the Triad, leading to an extended period of unsettled weather and better, code GREEN, air quality readings (GENTRY).
