Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels should remain in the YELLOW range despite the start of the day being overcast over the Triad, especially the western parts of the Triad. These clouds were from a weak front that pushed in from the east, which directly helped improve AQI readings for Wednesday. Thursday should have a similar start but clouds will dissipate by the afternoon and temperatures will quickly push into the upper 80s. This will help allow AQI levels to remain in the YELLOW range once again. There will be a slight chance for storms Thursday. The heat that will follow will be the hottest weather we have seen so far this year as highs reach into the low 90s and lows only fall into the upper 60s. Humidity levels will not be pleasant and air quality readings will increase higher into the YELLOW range as the holiday weekend progresses. Please stay tuned to potential updates to the forecast as they are needed. (Bodenhamer)
