Synopsis and Discussion

High pressure continues to hold on over the Triad this afternoon, allowing for air quality levels to reside in the low Code YELLOW range. Weakening remnants of an upper level trough will squeeze in some scattered showers early Wednesday, with enough precipitation falling periodically through the day to drop air quality levels into the upper Code GREEN range. High pressure builds back into the area on Thursday with a continual southerly flow ushering in a cleaner air mass to keep air quality Code GREEN. Particulate matter concentrations will begin to edge upward on Friday with the approach of a stronger upper level trough from the west, but strengthening southwest winds should generate plenty of low-level dispersion to keep air quality levels in the upper Code GREEN range.
