Synopsis and Discussion

A wedge of cold air is expected to develop across the Triad this afternoon, with northeasterly winds allowing for air quality levels to fall into the upper Code GREEN range. The wedge is expected to slowly lose its grip across the Carolinas through the day tomorrow, with periods of light showers bringing elevated levels of particle pollution closer to the surface to drive air quality levels upwards into the low Code YELLOW range. Particulate matter concentrations are expected to remain in the low Code YELLOW range again on Tuesday as pollution particles build up ahead of the approaching cold front from the west. The frontal boundary and its associated precipitation will transit the Piedmont early Wednesday before slowly moving out to the south and east later in the evening. Shower coverage is expected to be more widespread during the day on Wednesday, so expect air quality levels to drop into the middle Code GREEN range by the evening. (PAYNE)
