Synopsis and Discussion

With the cold front finally pushing through the Triad this afternoon, drier air has moved in from the west in its wake to allow for air quality levels to rise into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. Weak high pressure is expected to build across the Triad overnight and through the weekend, allowing for dry and pleasant conditions Saturday and Sunday. A lack of dispersion and abundant sun will likely allow for ozone and particle pollution levels to rise each day into the upper Code GREEN range (and possibly into the low Code YELLOW range for a few afternoon hours). The upper low that supported the stormy weather this week will finally weaken and lift off to the northeast late Sunday and Monday, allowing for high pressure to strengthen across the state. With that said, expect air quality levels to remain in the upper Code GREEN range at the start of next week. (PAYNE)
