Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels are in the YELLOW range Wednesday as sunny skies and warm temperatures continue to cover the region. Winds also remain light out of the northeast as Ozone levels ramp up into the mid to upper YELLOW range. A very active weather pattern is in store for the Triad over the next few days as TD Nine tracks north into the southeastern US. This storm's track is slowly shifting farther west each model run, which could produce a very wet couple of days for our region. Friday and Saturday could be affected the most but this storm's track and the position and strength of a cold front sliding in from the northwest could greatly affect which areas get hit and which areas stay dry. Either way, AQI readings should return to the GREEN range by Friday and hold there through the weekend. (Bodenhamer)
