Synopsis and Discussion

A mix of Saharan dust and Alaskan/Canadian wildfire smoke aloft and mostly sunny skies have kept ozone and particle pollution in the Code YELLOW range this afternoon. An upper level ridge builds in across the southeastern United States tomorrow through the end of the week. This should allow for prime ozone production into the middle Code YELLOW range across the Triad as temperatures increase into the mid to upper 90s Wednesday and Thursday. The stable airmass should keep particle pollution levels in the middle Code YELLOW range tomorrow through the end of the week. By Friday the upper level ridge begins to retrograde west, but the airmass should be slow to transition and will keep air quality levels in the low Code YELLOW range. (PAYNE)
