Synopsis and Discussion

Weak high pressure currently residing over the Triad will likely keep air quality levels in the upper Code GREEN range this afternoon. South to southwest winds will gradually increase across the Carolinas overnight and through much of tomorrow, ushering in a cleaner air mass from the south to drop particle pollution levels into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. A cold front moving in from the west will bring some late morning showers to the Triad before colder air punches in from behind in the afternoon. The cooler high pressure ridge moving in behind the front late Saturday will drop air quality levels into the lower to middle Code GREEN range. Particle pollution will likely remain in the lower to middle Code GREEN range Sunday as the ridge of high pressure settles over the Carolinas. (PAYNE)
