Synopsis and Discussion

High pressure remains firmly entrenched across the Triad this afternoon, with light winds and sunny skies allowing for air quality levels to rise into the low Code YELLOW range. The ridge of high pressure begins to weaken tomorrow as winds as an influx of a deep plume of moisture gradually moves in from the south in the afternoon during the total solar eclipse. However, the ridge of high pressure will likely hold long enough to keep any storms from developing to allow air quality levels to rise into the lower Code YELLOW range Monday. Southwesterly winds gradually intensify through the day on Tuesday as a cold front approaches from the west. This should generate enough dispersion to drop air quality levels into the upper Code GREEN range. Clouds and scattered showers/storms resulting from the passage of the cold front will likely keep ozone and particle pollution levels in the middle to upper Code GREEN range on Wednesday. (Payne)
