Synopsis and Discussion

An upper level ridge has been building over the southeastern United States today to help sustain a very hot and oppressively humid air mass that will remain over the Triad through the weekend. Limited cloud cover and only slight chances of precipitation each day should allow for decent ozone and particle pollution production across the region. However, the increase in humidity across the Piedmont will likely limit ozone production to keep air quality levels from rising above the low to middle Code YELLOW range through Sunday. In addition, air quality is expected to take a backseat to the dangerous heat indices expected each day through Sunday and will easily be the primary driver for keeping sensitive groups from overexerting themselves outdoors. The hot and stick air mass will begin to subside on Monday with the approach of a cold front from the northwest that should usher in cooler temperatures next week. (Payne)
