Triad Air Quality
Synopsis and Discussion
Particle pollution levels will continue to remain in the low Code YELLOW range Monday as a surface high pressure ridge to the south of the Triad moves eastward across Florida. Warm southwest flow should persist overnight and into tomorrow, allowing current particulate matter concentrations to build upon dirtier upstream areas to the west/southwest and rise into the low to mid Code YELLOW range Tuesday. A developing low pressure system in the Central Plains is expected to move eastward into the mid-Atlantic states on Wednesday. The slow eastward progression of the front Wednesday will likely keep particle pollution levels in the Code YELLOW range until the evening when a Canadian high pressure ridge begins to build in behind the front overnight. On Thursday, the aforementioned ridge will settle across the southeast and cause particulate matter concentrations to bottom out in the mid Code GREEN range (PAYNE).
