Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels have risen into the upper Code GREEN range on this Memorial Day holiday, though scattered showers and thunderstorms this evening will likely wash out any elevated concentrations of pollution. The frontal boundary associated with this evening's convective activity will push just to the southeast of the Triad tomorrow, keeping skies partly sunny and providing a slight chance of some afternoon showers/storms. With that said, expect air quality levels to remain in the upper Code GREEN range. Skies should be a bit clearer on Wednesday with the frontal boundary pushing further towards the southeast. However, another front will approach from the northwest Wednesday evening, allowing for a slight buildup of ozone levels into the lower Code YELLOW range prior to isolated showers moving into the area. High pressure builds across the Piedmont on Thursday, with clear skies and calm winds allowing for ozone levels to rise into the low to middle Code YELLOW range. (Payne)
