Synopsis and Discussion

Ozone and particle pollution readings should remain in the code GREEN range on Tuesday. Weak low pressure is expected to form and move across the eastern Carolinas on Wednesday. This combined with two surface frontal boundaries and an energized southern jet stream will produce plentiful clouds and increased rain chances that will keep air quality in the low to mid code GREEN range. As the system departs and sunny skies return on Thursday, breezy northwest winds will transport a clean air mass into the area and keep the lower atmosphere well mixed, resulting in another day of GOOD air quality. High pressure looks to build eastward across the central and southern Appalachians on Friday. With lighter winds expected, AQI readings could increase but still remain well within the code GREEN range. (Perrotte)
