Synopsis and Discussion

The offshore low pressure system, which may develop into a tropical storm in the immediate future, continues to provide enough cloud cover and low-level dispersion to keep air quality levels within the middle to upper Code GREEN range. Fortunately the tropical low will quickly move off to the northeast tomorrow as it gets picked up by an upper level trough. The clearing of skies in the wake of the departing low should increase solar radiation across the Triad and elevate ozone levels into the upper Code GREEN range. After a late evening round of showers associated with a shortwave disturbance riding along the base of the upper trough, convective activity should remain well to the east on Saturday to help elevate air quality levels into the lower Code YELLOW range as skies clear out and temperatures rise. Low Code YELLOW will likely persist into Sunday, despite the increase in southwesterly winds ahead of another upper level disturbance that approaches from the west in the evening. (Payne)
