Synopsis and Discussion

Sunny skies, light winds, and hot temperatures, Thursday, have resulted in good ozone production and code ORANGE levels. Little change to the weather is expected, Friday, therefore, similar ozone levels are likely by late in the afternoon. More moisture and a better chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms, Saturday, will help to drop ozone levels back to upper code YELLOW. Additional instability, Sunday, will keep ozone in the mid YELLOW range, at best. Particle pollution will remain low code YELLOW through the weekend. *************************************************************************** ***************************************************************************Code ORANGE is Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups which include children, teens, older adults, outdoor workers and athletes, people with any heart or lung disease (like asthma), and people with other health impairments. Sensitive groups need to reduce their outdoor physical exertion/activity during code ORANGE days, although, this doesn't mean people need to stay indoors. ****************************************************************************************************************************************************** Burn Ban: Due to code ORANGE levels of ozone a burn ban is in effect for the forecast area, Friday, July 21th. The forecast area includes the following counties: Forsyth, Guilford, Alamance, Randolph, Davie, Davidson, Stokes, Rockingham, Caswell, and Surry (GENTRY).
