Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels remain in the GREEN range as winds begin to shift to the southwest and more afternoon convection begins to develop. There will be a slight chance for storms Wednesday but a better chance for Thursday as a cold front and upper level trough pushes into NC during the evening hours. This front will allow cooler, drier air to push into the region and help skies become mostly sunny Friday and Saturday, which will help ozone values increase, but for now remain readings should remain in the GREEN range. Another upper level trough should dig into the southeast next week and help keep AQI values in the GREEN range. (Bodenhamer)
