Synopsis and Discussion

Ground-level ozone concentrations will continue to hover around the upper Code YELLOW to lower Code ORANGE range across the Triad for the rest of the afternoon, thus keeping the AIR QUALITY ALERT in tact for the remainder of the day. A few isolated showers have developed in the mountains and south of the Triad, but their sporadic coverage isn't expected to bring relief to the area this afternoon and evening. Another hot day is expected for Tuesday, but the increase in winds from the west and southwest coupled with a higher chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms should keep air quality levels in the upper Code YELLOW range. A backdoor front moves into the Triad on Wednesday and is expected to linger through the end of the week. Temperatures will likely remain in the low 90s through the period, but the stationary frontal boundary should provide a potent trigger for scattered to widespread showers and thunderstorms each afternoon across the Triad to keep air quality levels Code YELLOW Wednesday and Thursday.
