Synopsis and Discussion

Despite a few hourly ozone concentrations peaking in the low Code YELLOW range in the late morning prior to the passage of the cold front, gusty northwest winds behind the frontal boundary have dropped ozone levels into the upper Code GREEN range. A ridge of high pressure will settle over the Triad tomorrow, with northerly winds introducing a relatively cleaner air mass to keep air quality levels in the middle to upper Code GREEN range. The high pressure ridge settles over the Piedmont on Saturday, with light and variable winds allowing for decent ozone production to elevate air quality levels into the lower Code YELLOW range by the afternoon. A cut off upper level low pressure system approaches the eastern United States on Sunday, ushering in enough cloud cover and some scattered showers later in the day to keep ozone and particle pollution levels in the upper Code GREEN range.
