Synopsis and Discussion

A ridge of high pressure continues to move offshore this afternoon, allowing for southwesterly winds to usher in a warm, moist air mass across the Triad. Skies have remained partly sunny, and the increase in cloud cover has limited ozone levels from rising out of the upper Code GREEN range. More of the same can be expected tomorrow as a frontal boundary approaches from the west. Pollution particles are expected to accumulate ahead of the boundary, but the widespread coverage of partly sunny skies should allow for air quality levels to remain in the upper Code GREEN range. The frontal boundary moves into the Triad on Sunday, with light to moderate showers keeping air quality levels in the middle to upper Code GREEN range. The boundary departs the Triad to the east on Monday, but the winds in its wake will still persist out of the southwest with the approach of another upper level disturbance. With that said, expect air quality levels to remain Code GREEN at the start of the work week. (PAYNE)
