Synopsis and Discussion

Particle pollution levels currently reside in the Code GREEN range as skies have begun to clear in the wake of the departing storm that has dumped over a foot in the majority of locations across the Triad. High pressure will likely keep skies generally clear and dry during the day Tuesday and Wednesday, but this will likely lead to strong and shallow inversions that should become amplified with the remnant snow cover tonight and tomorrow night. Thus, particle pollution levels will likely rise into the Code YELLOW range through mid-week as concentrations build up under the inversion. An approaching cold front will usher in milder conditions on Thursday, but particulate matter concentrations will likely be slow to drop and air quality levels should remain Code YELLOW prior to the arrival of the frontal boundary.
